Marked-Up SVG World Map

An SVG world map marked-up with ISO 3166 country codes. Path (path) and group (g) elements are annotated with cc attributes containing their country codes.

For example, to colour Canada red, you might use the following JavaScript:

// 'map' should contain a reference to the embedded SVG element
map.getSVGDocument().querySelector("[cc=ca]").style.fill = "red";

A full example is included in the example.html file.
