Hi everybody,

I want to make a map in Flash which is connected through PHP with a database. Now, the problem is that I need the map to have coordinates (grades, minutes and seconds instead of pixels), so that I may be able to load onto it one or more movie clips in the exact position that I desire.
es. through a search field the user comes up to a town. The database calls
the right part of the map and loads the icon of the town and other information to
the exact geografical coordinates of the map.

How can I do that (convert the pixels sistem to geografical coordinates)
and are there any examples of maps made with Flash using this or similar methods?

Please help me!

Thanks in advance,
