U.S. Map with All Cities for WordPress Website

We often receive orders that, at first sight, seem impossible to fulfill. For example, a map of the United States with all the cities you can click on. But there are more than 30,000 cities, and we have to create a link for all of them. So how do we create such a map quickly and easily?

We found a quick solution to this problem.

One of our clients wanted to add all the cities of the USA to the map and that these very cities would have had clickable links that would lead to different pages of the website. We suggested using a bundle plugin that includes the maps for each state. The links for the cities are displayed by choosing the county.

Please, take a look at the example for Florida. Try to click on the counties!

By clicking on the county, the list of the cities with a population of more than 5000 people will be displayed near the map.  Also, the color of the county in this example depends on the number of cities included.

Here you find an example of the interactive USA map including the cities with a population of more than 200.000 people.

How did we make a US map with all cities?

As well as other plugins, a bundled plugin with all US maps has functions for the export and import of CSV and JSON files. Therefore the main task was to create a script that generates the file with the pre-integrated settings for the importation into a plugin. If you have good programmers, it won’t be time-consuming.  The script processes the database with the list of the cities and compares the state and the county. Also, we added the population’s amount filter.

But what’s to be done with the automatic links adding? The client’s request was as follows – each link for the city should have the following template: / [state] / [city]
For example, Tampa will have the following link: /florida/tampa/
