HTML image map – Image Maps part 2
Some important points to remember when designing Image Maps
- The image used as a map should be large enough so that the users’ cursor is not confined in a small place with lots of links.
- It is recommended that the <MAP> tag along with its <AREA>s is placed at the end of the HTML document.
- Use client-side maps unless most of your audience is using older browsers that support only server-side maps. There are many benefits in using the map on the client, especially performance.
Hard disk storage capacities have been increasing over the years. The world's first hard disk, IBM 350 Disk File, could store 5MB of data was announced on 4th September 1956. The first 1TB drive appeared 51 years later in 2007. It took just a couple of years to double the capacity and the first 2GB drive came into the market in 2009.
