single photo often adorned with text or messages that you want to
link to pages or websites. In most cases you can only link the
entire image to one link.
With an image map you can map
out different areas and shapes on the image and link them to
different locations. One good example

is just one image but each state links to a page about starting a
business in that state. This is normally a very complex process

creating these maps but who want to buy them, install it and

address, contact forms, website pages and so on.
