Custom maps in BO dashboards

Can anyone help me with the following?

In BO dashboards / Xcelsius, I would like to have a custom map of Belgium, divided in regions according to the sales organisation of our company and with functionality that is analogue to the standard maps in BO Dashboards.  For instance:

  • The color of the regions in the map should be data driven (color depends on a a certain measure target (e.g. green, orange, red according to actual sales figures and targets). 
  • The regions on the map should be clickable.  On a click, underlying data of the region should be shown (e.g. in a separate dashboard component)

We create the required custom map of Belgium with MAPINFO software.

Is it possible to build from this a component that is usable in BO dashboard (e.g. just like a standard BO dashboard map?).   Who can help me on this?  What about the evolution towards HTML5?

There are 3rd party addons for doing this, but we are a bit reluctant for using these (compatibility with SAP's upgrades of BO dashboards...)

Many thanks,
