That should be quite possible to implement in Flash. I've worked quite a
bit with map zooming for various displays (screens/printers etc), and as
long as the base data is properly layered you can add/remove stuff
automatically to get reasonable amounts of information. I didn't use
Flash in that project, but it certainly seems to be powerful enough to
handle this. For optimization you'd want to keep the layers in separate
files and only fetch those that you need - you'd probably also want to
split the map into reasonably sized squares for the same reason.
