PHP Map with Parallelogram shapes
Map with Rhomb cells

In this page I added PHP and CSS code snippets that can be used to create dynamically a Map with PHP.
CSS is used to display the map cells in different shapes: rectangles, parallelograms, and rhombs.
- The cells are <div> elements added in <blockquote> tags for each row. You can define the number of cels and columns.

Simple PHP Map with Rectangle shapes

<?php
// http://coursesweb.net/php-mysql

$nr = 20;                   // HERE add the number of cells (php will auto complete the last row wih the remaining cells)
$cols = array(4, 5);        // HERE add the number of alternate cols to each row
$css_class = 'map_cell';        // css class added in each cell
$addtxt = 1;                // when is 1 add text in cell (cell number)
$map_html = '';             // stores the returned html code

// variables used to alternate the number of cells to each row
$x = 1;
$b = $cols[$x];

// creates the html code
for($i=1; $i<=$nr; $i++) {
  if($b == $cols[$x % 2]) {
    $blk1 = '<blockquote class="rw'. ($x % 2) .'">';
    $blk2 = '</blockquote>';
    $use = $x % 2;
    $b = 1;
    $x++;
  }
  else {
    $b++;
    $blk1 = '';  $blk2 = '';
  }
  $map_html .= $blk1 .'<div class="'. $css_class .'">'. ($addtxt == 1 ? $i : '') .'</div>'. $blk2;

  // adds the remaining cells to complete the row
  if($addtxt == 1 && $i == $nr) {
    $addtxt = 0;
    $nr += $cols[($use + 1) % 2] - $b;
  }
}
?>
