An image map is a graphical image that is divided into regions, each of which corresponds to a specific hyperlink or area within the image. In HTML, image maps are created using the <map> and <area> tags.

Here’s an example of how to create an image map in HTML:

htmlCopy code

<img src="example.jpg" usemap="#examplemap">

<map name="examplemap">
  <area shape="rect" coords="0,0,100,100" href="link1.html">
  <area shape="circle" coords="150,150,50" href="link2.html">
  <area shape="poly" coords="200,200,250,250,300,200" href="link3.html">

In this example, we first specify the image source using the <img> tag. We then create a map with the <map> tag and assign it a name using the name attribute. Within the <map> tag, we define the areas of the image using the <area> tag.

The shape attribute specifies the shape of the area (in this case, rectangle, circle, or polygon), and the coords attribute specifies the coordinates of the area on the image. The href attribute specifies the hyperlink that will be associated with the area.

When a user clicks on a defined area within the image, they will be redirected to the associated hyperlink.
