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.
Image map is sometimes spelled as one word: imagemap.
