Imagemaps

Imagemaps allow a designer to take a single image and break it down into multiple sections of varying shapes. Each of those sections can then be linked to a different web page.

While this sounds convenient, and while imagemaps have certainly been a significant part of web design for some time, the reality is that they are becoming less present on professional sites. Whether this has to do with the fact that more sophisticated and attractive technologies, such as JavaScript mouseovers, are taking precedence over imagemapping, or that mapping is too fixed for today's regularly updated web sites, is difficult to determine.
