The interactive map is an XML based framework in Flash/AS3 for the generation of interactive maps using ESRI shapefiles as a base. It was designed for the RIVM zorgatlas in order to simplify the regular returning data update procedure and expand the ways of interaction within the zorgatlas.
Using the framework updating is merely a matter of uploading a new ESRI shapefile and accompanying database. Database couplings, layers, layout and interaction elements can all be determined within one single XML file. This makes the map easily adaptable for different subjects and themes within the atlas.
