Subject:Re: "Hot Spot" Graphic Map Tools for HTML From:David Fisher <DAF -dot- DSKPO27B -at- DSKBGW1 -dot- ITG -dot- TI -dot- COM> Date:Fri, 12 Apr 1996 08:06:28 CDT
John Alciere asked for recommendations.
I'm looking for recommendations for tools that generate graphic "hot-spot"
maps to be included in HTML documents. If possible, I'd like to be able to
preview the hot-spot mapping from my PC (which has a web browser but not a
server), rather than have to load it onto a web server.
I use MapEdit 2.1, a shareware software product ($25). It allows you to preview
your hot spots and edit them. It also saves in either CERN or NCSA format.
Check on http://www.yahoo.com for mapedit. That's how I got it.
Hope it helps.
