What is the FLA?
FLA is the commonly used format by Macromedia Flash software. This is the source code of the
published (SWF format) Flash animations. The Flash 5 format FLA supported by the following programs:
Macromedia Flash 5, Flash MX, Flash MX 2004 and Flash 8.
Our maps are developed using Adobe (formerly Macromedia) Flash technology.
Flash player is installed on 99.8% of Internet users' computers; it allows the map
to be seen by practically everyone.
When you purchased the map you received a FLA-source file and a customization tutorial
in Adobe PDF Format. The .FLA file is the source file for Adobe Flash and can be opened
with Flash version 5 or higher. When you open this source file using Adobe Flash application
you will be able to publish/export/convert it to different web-ready formats like SWF, GIF, JPEG
etc. As well as to some print-ready formats like high-resolution jpegs, vectorized EPS etc.
The FLA file can be opened and edited with Adobe Flash 5 or higher. The trial version of this
program is available for download here:

Our default map is setup to have clickable regions/administrative subdivisions plus 5-10 major
cities in each country. If you need to increase the number of cities in each country you can
either have your developer do it (our maps are easily customizable and come with a 'how-to' tutorial)
or have us do it (an additional charge of $0.50 per city applies) and a list of clickable cities has to
be provided for each country in advance.
