A simple tools to generate HTML imagemap or coordinates list (eg. to be inserted into a database) from an Inkscape SVG file. Also usefull for creating imagemap and generate area-coloured images on the fly using the coordinates (eg. in PHP with GD library). It requires Java to run.
- Works with Inkscape Polygons
- Save to HTML ImageMap or coordinate list
- Allows to add URL to areas
- Visual feedback of the editing
Thanks for Inkscapemap, it's excellent!

Great software, thanks inkscapemap

When maps are detailed and/or sloppy created, regardless of InkScape version, you can use Adobe Illustrator: Steps: # Open a *vector* file in Illustrator # Ungroup all objects, remove clipping masks, remove all strokes, leave just fill and go to Object > Expand # Select all objects and go to Object > Path > Simplify, under Options *check* Straight lines and then OK # Export the vector from Illustrator as SVG *1.0* (nothing "Adobe", nothing optimized, standard SVG) # Open InkScape, go to File > Inskscape Preferences > SVG Output, *uncheck* Allow relative coordinates and *check* Force repeat commands # Open the SVG file in InkScape # Convert objects to paths, Path > Object to Path, then select tool Edit path by nodes (F2), select *all* nodes (drag) and then click on the 11th icon from the left - Make selected segments lines (The last step in InkScape are just in case erros still occur, the objects should have already been optimized successfully by Illustrator.) ATTENTION: # if you have a compound vector path (i.e. imagine a "lake" inside a country) you *have* to delete it manually (delete the "lake", not the country), otherwise you will receive error.
