Adding Links to a Graphic by Using Image Maps

An image map is an image that has regions, called hotspots, defined as hyperlinks. When a viewer clicks a hotspot, it acts just like any other hyperlink. Instead of adding one hyperlink to an entire image, you can define a number of hotspots on different portions of an image. You can even create hotspots in different shapes.

Image maps are useful for presenting graphical menus that the viewer can click to select regions of a single image. For instance, you could create an image out of a picture of Europe. You could draw hotspots around the different countries in Europe. When the viewer clicked a country's hotspot, she could jump to a web page with information on that country.
