When you use a client-side imagemap, the information on the "hot spots" (clickable areas) in the image is defined here. Every selectable area should be mentioned in an AREA tag inside the MAP tag. The NAME attribute on the MAP tag assigns a name to the imagemap. The URL for the client-side imagemap should point to this.
For example, if you have a map named "foo", you could reference to it
<IMG SRC="map.gif" USEMAP="#foo">
if the image was on the same page.
