The map tag, or Image Map element, is used to designate an image map (an image with clickable areas).


The <map> tag must have the required name attribute to associate it with the <img>‘s usemap attribute. Inside the <map> tag are <area> tags that provide the coordinates of clickable areas in the image map.

<map name="examplemap">
  <area shape="circle" coords="75,75,75" href="example-one.html" alt="Click to go somewhere" />
  <area shape="circle" coords="275,75,75" href="example-two.html" alt="Click to go somewhere else" />

<img usemap="#examplemap" src="https://via.placeholder.com/600x600" alt="A 600 x 600 image map" />


This required attribute provides the name of the image map to associate it with the <img>‘s usemap attribute.
