Select an area

There are three different tools for marking an area you want to use as a link. The tools you are able to choose from are a rectangle (5), a circle (6) and a polygon (7). Click on any of the tools and then click-and-drag (in the example a rectangle) to place your rectangle on the desired place on the image where you want to create the link.

The size of the area can be altered by pulling the corners. If the area is larger than the image, the overflow will be erased when the imagemap is rendered online. In the work area for the imagemap the complete area is displayed.

3. Add a description and the link address

When you have selected an area of the image the field description will become active. Here you add a description of to where this area is linked. Click on Browse and type address or browse to the link destination.

A tip for accessibility! For increased accessibility you can provide text as an alternative to image maps. SiteVision is using client based imagemaps.

  • Describe the object with an alt-text.
  • Describe each link in the object with a title-text.
