    I don't think you are going to find a simple image that is going to do what you want - you will either need to do the image mapping yourself, or find someone who has already done it.
    I assume you are talking about a map to be used on a web page? Googling on "image mapping html" brings up many possibilities, such as GeoHTML and MapDesigner.

    Well..yes, that's the idea. Using something already available (50 states times a few points por polygon is quite a bit of work that doesn't need to be duplicated). It's not unusual to see distributorship maps on commercial web sites with this feature.....

    The only issue I would worry about is copyright. Finding a map with an image map is easy, but finding one that is available to borrow may be more difficult. Of course, it would be difficult or impossible for anyone to prove it...

    My that bug spreads quickly!

    Your best, safest bet, would be to use an image mapper to create the effect you want. I've had great success with Meracl Image Map Generator, available free from http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Web_Aut..._Generator.html I used this to create an image map of a program I wrote in Excel, and I found it very easy to use.
