The jQuery mapbox() plugin is for creating relatively small scale, zoomable, draggable maps with multiple layers of content. This framework could be applied to games, development plans, or any layout that could benefit from being able to zoom in and pan to get a better view.
Before using Mapbox, you must link to jQuery and mapbox.js. I do this in the HEAD of my document. I always use the minified jQuery that is hosted by Google. Also, if you want the map’s zoom to be activated by the mousewheel, you must include the mousewheel plugin: plugins.jquery.com/project/mousewheel
