An image map is usually a picture that has many clickable regions or invisible
hyperlinks to other websites, clicking on the regions will let users access
to additional information in a pop up infobox, or link to other associated
video clips or photo albums. In the past, only web programmers and designers
who knew how to code HTML can create image maps with different sections
that will respond differently on rollover.
