I've inherited a bunch of legacy transit maps originally built in Flash CS5. These maps pan zoom, and reveal stop ID information when a given stop is rolled over. They also have a legend that can be expanded.
Here is a sample:
The native Flash CS5 sample file can be downloaded and viewed below. It's fairly simple – nothing fancy:
I'm hoping there is a way to convert these to HTML5 Canvas using Adobe Animate. These original native files will open in that app, and all the stops (there are over 2000 spread across dozens of files – one for each route of the service) are placed and have the correct IDs associated. I've started converting to AS3 (from AS1 – yes, these are that old), but I don't know if that's worthwhile. I have no experience with Actionscript to speak of.
If this is possible, I suppose it's then a matter of figuring out how to convert them. Ideally the final result will be usable on mobile devices.
If I'm barking up the wrong tree using Animate, I'm open to ideas. But again, with thousands of stops and all of them placed on maps and tagged with the proper ID, much of the battle is won if I can continue using Adobe Animate to push out html5 versions. Is this possible, and if so what would be the best way forward given what I already have?
If you can offer some guidance, please do fire away. Many thanks!
