    An image map is positional information XHTML and HTML which has details of coordinates related to a unique image. Unlike a normal image link where the entire area of image is linked to a single destination, an image map is created to hyperlink sections in image to different destinations. Image maps provide a convenient way of linking different sections of an image without the need to create image files for the image.

    An image map is also known as a clickable image map.

    In HTML and XHTML, 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. For example, a map of the world may have each country hyperlinked to further information about that country.

    A single graphic image containing more than one hot spot. For example, imagine a graphic of a bowl of fruit. When you click on a banana, the system displays the number of calories in a banana and when you click on an apple, it displays the number of calories in an apple.
    Image maps are used extensively on the World Wide Web. Each hot spot in a Web image map takes you to a different Web page.

    An imagemap on the WWW permits the web document writer to include in its document the ability for a viewer to "click" on a portion of a GIF or JPEG (or any other image) file. There are three components in a Web page image map:

    An image: a normal web image, usually stored in the GIF or JPEG format.
    A set of map data: a description of the mapped regions within the image.
    An HTML host entry: the HTML code that positions the image within the web page and designates the image as having map functionality.
