I've encountered a circular image map while making an image map in HTML. Is there a difference between a circle and rectangle image map when placed in the HTML or do they function the same?
Is there a difference between circle and rectangle image map?
There are two kinds of Image Map; Server Side and Client Side. Wherein the circle and rectangle image map are in the same areas of Client Side Image Maps. They are both more popular and gives the user the possibility to see directly if where they are about to click, as opposite to Server Side Image Map where they must wait for the reply from the server.
But they are different in co-ordinates, and its horizontal and vertical position.
Rectangle Image Map
Has four (4) co-ordinates
(x1) the left
(y1) the top
(x2) the right
(y2) the bottom corner
Circle Image Map
Has only three (3) co-ordinates
(X, Y) the horizontal and vertical center
