update map on webpage from access db

I have an extremely simple db one table TblCountry and TblNames.

The name table has names of people who emigrated from Dover along with the country code (autoid) of TblCountry.

I have a wordpress site.
At present I have a decent png of a map of the world and just edited the totals against each country manually.  but its too labour intensive.

Is it possible and how could I update the map from the DB.

so if USA went from 9 people to 10 it would be updated from the db.

Heres the query data:
Country      Number of People
Within UK      12
USA      6
Australia      6
Spain       5
Germany      2
Virgin Islands      1
Singapore      1
Portugal      1
Norway      1
New Zealand      1
Greece      1
Gibraltar      1

SELECT TblCountry.Country, Count(TblNames.CountryID) AS [Number of People]
FROM TblCountry LEFT JOIN TblNames ON TblCountry.ID = TblNames.CountryID
GROUP BY TblCountry.Country
HAVING (((Count(TblNames.CountryID))>0))
ORDER BY Count(TblNames.CountryID) DESC;

Open in new window


I have attached the map so you can see.
regards in advance

You'd need to tell us more about how you did that. Does the map derive information from your database to show the values? If so, can you show how it does that?

You can use free OpenStreetMaps plugin for Wordpress:
http://wordpress.org/plugins/osm/
It can show markers from text file, which could be generated from Access and uploaded to your site.

Yes, you should set coordinates of markers.
There is author's blog with a lot of samples:
