Hi all, looking for a freelancer to help with a project.
Basically were after something like Zoomify:- http://www.zoomify.com/flash.htm
But looking something similar to this (which, sadly, is no longer supported):- http://activeden.net/item/interactive-map-as3-v2/102048
A merge of the two if you like.
The important thing to us is that large images, and these will be high-res images 8000px x 8000px as an example, load quickly and in a stable manner, hence the zoomify example.
Zoomify is almost perfect for us but it lacks a couple important components. The main one is having hotspots that open images, video, sound players, etc in a similar way to litebox (http://www.lokeshdhakar.com/projects/lightbox2/). The other would be to customise the look and size of the buttons.
If you think you could help or would like further details send me a pm.
I am interested in this project.

hi this project sounds interesting … already done a flash+map project in the past, if you are interested I am available for freelancing and you can contact me at bgaby88 at yahoo dot com or through my portfolio page.
I did a similar map. Send a private message to give you the details.
Also interested in this project.
However, handling hi-res imagery exceeding 16.7 megapixels will present a problem (a 8000×8000 image contains 64 megapixels). Check out the following link for an explanation of Flash Player 10’s image limitations:http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/496/cpsid_49662.html
However, there is a work-around (as seen employed in your zoomify example). The technique has a number of pros (great performance) and cons (lots of pre-processing involved).
