    Sir thank you for your information. I am about to make a WP site and need a place where i can find information of such plugins and this site is really wonderful. While i was searching about WP map plugins i came across a plugin called ‘WordPress US Map Plugin’. It helps to navigate regional sections of site, it even works on iphone as it does not have flash and when you hover your cursor over the map it shows information in a small popup window, you can even adjust colors of map and can even customize click behavior.
    Include this plugin too in your blog, it will make it really perfect to starters like me and i would say Fla-shop, the best Premium WordPress Map Plugin Provider. I found this plugin over here
    Again thank you for your information, it will really help me sir !

    Thank you for this detailed overview. I have a specific question though: Is there a Map-Plugin that has the feature to insert a proper map into single posts and at the same time provide the sum of all these marked locations in on single map?
    I’ve a website of german kindergarten: in each post of a kindergarten i’d like to put a map. Additionally i’d like to have a complete global map of all kindergartens, which automatically updates with changes in the single posts.
    Thanks a lot for your help!
