Interactive maps and lists of sub-divisions

Interactive maps are welcome and encouraged. However, for someone unfamiliar with the area's geography (or bad at reading maps), the maps may pose a challenge finding the sub-division of their choice. When employing an interactive map, the author should accompany that map with either (a) a short link to a page that shows an "Alphabetical List of States" (or whatever the sub-division is), or (b) such a list on the same page as the map. The alphabetical list should link to the same places as the links on the map. Diltsgd 23:36, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

It would make sense to me to have both the map and alphabetic list. I can understand other cases, such as part of the map is too small to see or things are too close together. Thomas Lerman 04:54, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
