[Rift][Template] Riftcoord improvementsFollow

I would like to help make the rift coordinate template a bit better by adding a mouse-over map with marker to the Riftcoord-template. The process will require map files for all the zones to be uploaded + the marker-star from in-game in addition to the template with some magic use of tooltip-javascript.

The question is, is there any such "auto-tooltip" javascript in place for the ZAM-wikis ord would this have to be added before work can begin on this template?

I'm thinking of having a template that does something along the lines of:

<span class="magic" >[XX,YY]</span>
<div><img source="map"><img source="marker" pos="x,y"></div>

This is very similar to what other wikis have and it generally works on the assumption that a site-wide javascript will trigger the showing of the map when the mouse goes over the coordinate, kind of like how it is for item-tooltips.

Is this kind of thing possible today, and if so, what classes and convension will have to be followed?

We don't have a tool like that for Rift at this time. For now, we do not have coords in the mob data from Trion. Heck, it does not even have zone names.

When the data improves, and it is little by little, we will be working on some kind of mob map tool.
