I would like to use the Imagemap control in vs2008. I have a map of Oregon and want to adds some polygonHotSpots. Then I would like to show some pictures of the hot spot area on rollover or (on clicked). I have two questions...

#1 As there does not seem to be a graphical tool to draw on the image to set the coordinates, what is the best way to figure that out?

#2 Once I have the hot spots, how do I control the attributes of the other image controls on the page?

Mapedit is good to make image maps

you can have the hotspot run a javascript function so you can display rollover images etc  Below is some pseudo to help give you an idea

<script language="javascript">
function showtext(place){
document.myform.display.value = place
}
</script>

<map name="mapname">
<area shape="polygon" onMouseOver="showtext('Cash_Register')" onMouseOut="showtext('')" alt="Cash" coords="94,10,95,25" href="file1.html">
<area shape="polygon" onMouseOver="showtext('Cellular_Phone')" onMouseOut="showtext('')" alt="Cell Phone" coords="206,2,209,19" href="file2.html">
<area shape="polygon" onMouseOver="showtext('Toy_Box')" onMouseOut="showtext('')" alt="box" coords="356,25,359,75" href="file3.html">
<area shape="default" nohref>
</map>
