How to Easily Create an Image Map

by Tony Gamble

In a previous post, I was talking to you about image mapping. That’s the process of mapping out clickable hotspots on a single image. Ordinarily it involves writing a rather lengthy paragraph of complicated coordinate entries paired with anchor tags. It’s a HTML nightmare for anyone who’s not into HTML. Heck, it’s a drag for developers too. Luckily, there are a few online tools that make it super simple.

A Google search for “online image mapping” brings up many fine cloud-based tools to allow you to build your image map visually, without having to write a single line of code. Image-Maps.com offers lots of features but tends to lean towards code-friendly users. Not that you have to write any code, but its settings window has enough field entries to choke a camel. It does have a very clean interface, though, a grand step above the utilitarian form at MobileFish.com. If you want to get it done quickly with the least amount of fuss, I recommend Easy Imagemap Generator. This tool lets you get right to mapping out your hotspots, spitting out the HTML code you’ll need in real time. But there is a bit of a trick to it. In this screencast tutorial, I’ll show you how I’ve used it to build a simple image map in minutes.
