Using image maps for drop down menus

gabos asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I'm tasked with creating a website for one of our groups at work. I used a background picture and turned it into an image map. They really like the image. How can you turn an image map into a drop down menu?

My html code is attached.
<img  src="S:\GAIC\REF\REFTECH\BldgMgtCoWeb\buildingmanagementco\Pictures\picdrop.jpg" usemap="#map_name" border="0" id="navbar"/>
<map name="map_name">
<area shape="circle" coords="357, 147, 20," href="http://www.buildingmanagementco.com" target="_blank" />
<area shape="circle" coords="450, 122, 30" href="S:\GAIC\REF\REFTECH\BldgMgtCoWeb\buildingmanagementco\scripps.htm" target="_blank" />
<area shape="circle" coords="553, 108, 30" href="http://www.google.com" target="_blank" />
