Concept and philosophy behind ImageMapper:
the race to develop ever more sophisticated internet mapping solutions,
most GIS vendors have overlooked the potential benefits that HTML image
maps offer to the GIS and mapping community. First and foremost, HTML
image maps are widely and consistently supported across all of the major
web browsers without the need for applets, plug-ins, or other helper applications.
An image map can be deployed on any web server without installing additional
software or wrestling with complex configuration issues. In fact, image
maps can just as easily be distributed and viewed without a web server,
via e-mail, CD, floppy disk, file server, etc.
image maps are a more static representation of geographic data than some
other internet maps, a well designed image map will almost always provide
much more useful and understandable information than its auto-generated
counterparts. And since image map generation is controlled by a live person,
the map author can insure that each map is a high quality cartographic
product rather than an unintelligible mass of features and labels.
