Overview

An HTML image map is an image with multiple "hot spots". A classic use of an image map is a map of the United States, with each state being a hot spot. There are three key elements to an HTML image map.

Image <img src="graphics-file" usemap="#map-name">Specifies which image to display, and which <map> element to use
Map<map name="map-name"><area ... </map>Defines the collection of hot spots on the image, each specified by an <area> tag.
Areas<area shape="shape-type" coords="nn,.." href="target">Represent regions of the image that, when clicked, act as hyperlinks.
