I used to use XV to get the coordinates, but now I'm finding
that HyperMapEdit, a Macintosh HyperCard stack, is much easier, since
it automatically generates the imagemap config file for you!
I don't have the URL, but email
for details.
I would certainly like to see an X program that allows you to
create the shapes over an image, showing a transparent overlay of each
shape to easily show any overlapping areas. I'd like it to be able to
reload the shapes from a config file and have the points editable, too!
