Images and Mappings

In this lesson we will study images in relation to mappings. Let's begin!

In Chapter 3 (Exercise 2-17) you learned how you can turn your images into links by surrounding an <img> tag with an <a> tag. Images provide another great feature, the ability to define a number of hot-spots, each of them having a link of its own.

For example, you can display a color picker image where each separate color is a hot-spot, and when the user clicks any of them, you’ll use the link to pick up the appropriate color.

Another example is a map of the world, where you use each country as a hot-spot to show related sales information.
