Responsive Vector Maps (RVM) is a free map plugin for WordPress. Extremely easy too install and configure, RVM is a cool alternative to standard maps: beautiful and clean svg maps for modern websites, particularly suitable for travel bloggers and travel sites!
What does it do ?
RVM ( Responsive Vector Maps ) allows you to create customizable and clickable responsive vector maps for your WordPress sites. The plugin is completely free and comes by default with 2 maps: Italy Map and World Map.
All RVM maps are in SVG format (a vector format) that insures incredible definition to the map avoiding pixelation effect you have generally enlarging or reducing bitmap images (png, jpg, gif etc…).

Ok, but why vector ?
Vector maps have the advantage to not loose quality when reducing or increasing their sizes. Then maps created with this plugin are capable to maintain their aspect ratio adapting perfectly to their container.
You can use maps in sidebars as widgets or just in the post content using shortcodes.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I customize map and canvas colours ?
Yes, these are possible layout customisations:
- Canvas colour
- Map colour
- Map border colour
- Add zoom-in/zoom-out buttons
- Map width ( can use em, %, px etc.. )
Can I customize map region links ?
Yes, it’s possible to customize links for each region/area displayed in the map. When creating a new map or editing an existing one, you will have chance to assign url to each area/region of the map. Default areas/regions have just a tooltip mouseover effect displaying area/region name. It’s possible to add html or plain text into regions/areas tooltip in complete security.
Which WP version is the plugin compatible with ?
The plugin will work at its best from WP ver 3.6 onwards.
I created a new map, but I would like to give specific width just for a specific post, is it possible ?
Yes, you can create a new map which will adapt to your box container automatically and will be responsive, but you can even use an additional width parameter to the shortcode within a specific post. Your map will have specific width just for that post.
