What is an image map?


I’ve been continuing my HTML studies, and I didn’t quite grasp what an image map is. Please explain.

Thanks :slightly_smiling_face:

Hover - Image

Nice question!

Image map lets you link to many different web pages using a single image. You can define certain shapes in images that you want to make part of your image map.

I hope this helps =)


Thank you for the quick response :slightly_smiling_face:!

That makes slightly more sense now.


Your welcome :slightly_smiling_face:!

Glad I could help.


How do you define those certain shapes?


If I’m not mistaken, an image map is a list of coordinates relating to a specific image, created in order to hyperlink areas of the image to different destinations.

I hope this helps =)
