    I have a site I have setup for a client in Wordpress. They would like to have a "project map" that shows a map of the area, with markers for projects. When a project is clicked on, a little popup display with details.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to set this up? I'd like to set it up in some system they can easily update as well.

    Ideally I would love to find a plug-in for this type of thing that allows linking to project pages within the site. But the basic functionality I mentioned above would be great start on it's own.

    Thanks

    Take a look at the Google Maps API.
    (http://code.google.com/apis/maps/index.html)

    The Api allows you to place content and interactions within a map embedded in your page. Yahoo maps has a similar API, as does Microsoft.
