Region Specific Image Rollover
For the first time in a long time, I've encountered a project with a single image that has many regions. Each region is a polygon, and will bind to a unique rollover event. That rollover event will pull back data for each region. For the past few days, I've been brainstorming ways to pull this off.
I've thought of using a hidden image in a canvas with a black background, and a different color foreground for each region. Then, mapping the color the proper region data on the backend.
Initially, I dismissed the idea of a good, old-fashioned image map, in an attempt to find something sleeker and sexier. But perhaps this is the best solution?
Would love to hear your thoughts on this...

I'm just not a fan of recreating browser features. You're trying to build an image map, so why not just build an image map? Stupid rollovers.I'm the web overlord for Graphic Business Systems
