Scroll Overs for a Map

I am making a county map with markers/points on it of certain locations I am interested in. However when scrolling over the marker, I would like to see the name of the location. For example if the marker/point represented "Joe's Store", I would like a box that says "Joe's Store" when I scroll over the marker/point. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks for the help.

Perhaps something like this (done using the 'html' variable in the annotate data set)...

Thanks for the help. Is there anyway that this can be done in a pdf?

Support for drilldown urls was added to pdf in SAS 9.3.

But support for Scroll-Over text labels still hasn't been added for pdf (there's a request for R&D to consider adding that).
