    It's not a black hat tactic btw but just thought I would post it here cause I thought someone here would know...

    How would you go about creating a map like this for one of your clients? http://attorneyguss.com/houston-texas-interactive-accident-map/

    It's an interactive map that shows where the most car accidents occur in a given area.

    I am assuming it uses Google Maps API? But where do they get the accident stats from? Where do they pull it from?

    How hard would it be to get something like this programmed? Does it take a ton of programming skills? How much would it cost approximately?

    Just curious because we have some clients in the auto niche that this would work for.

    Oh wow, thanks for the info...but how would you program a map like that? What kind of programming skills do you need to program the accident info (from other states, since we have clients in other states/cities too) into the Google maps? Does it require coding?

    Bump; anyone know how what kind of coding it would take to import the data into a map like this? Does it require coding?

    I've seen a bunch of interactive map plugins for wordpress on codecanyon. I'm sure at least one could do what you want. You might be able to find on in the downloads section
