I'm hoping to overlay UK regions (East Midlands, Wales, London etc) on a Google Map. Ideally the regions could be coloured, opaque and have some form of label. There is no hover / interaction requirements for the overlays.
Q - #1 - It seems like this could be achieved with KML or fusion tables. Which do you think would be better?
Q - #2 - Do you know of a good source for the outline points of these regions? I've got access to points on other maps (SVG - see link below) but not sure if this translates. If regions are not available counties could be used and coloured the same (Counties - see link below )
