Hi, we need to develop a dynamic map in which all the USA is rendered in the following way:
Shaded polygon representing individual states, with the shade being a value, then a following layer of shading representing counties, and a third layer representing a block (211.000 blocks altogether). Once this visual representation has been rendered, we need to overlay what we call dealers, our dealers and the competition, and be able to sort by a series of parameters.
We do have all the boundaries for all the states, counties and blocks, as well the lat and long of the dealers. Please go to [url removed, login to view] to see an example.
Here is the catch. Given the fact that the data is so massive, if this is done in Java, it will take forever to render, and most likely will crash. If it's done in flash, it's much faster. The map will pull data from a mysql database (any ideas are welcomed).
We really need this in a crunch. Please write if you need further info.
