ImageMapster is a jQuery plugin that vitalizes the old image maps by adding more capabilities to them.

Using the plugin, any image map can be highlighted, selected (single or multiple areas) and manipulated in all kinds of ways.

There are many built-in functions provided like the ability to change the color-opacity or borders of the image map once it is selected. Or you can add a fade effect to them.

Tooltip support makes displaying user-friendly information possible while interacting with the image maps.

There are advanced functions like grouping areas to force the items to behave together (areas can be belong to more than one groups)

And, image map data can be automatically scaled to match the display size of an image or it can be resized to any defined dimensions (which is good for responsive designs).
