in FOAF

HTML Imagemap authoring tool for MacOSX?


I’ve searched around in vain for one. I want to annotate my FOAF spec diagram with mouseover text and links into the documentation. Most of the tools I find are a decade or more old, or pay-to-play. I remember the Gimp image editor can do imagemaps, but it crashes on startup on my MacBook. I did find a nice Javascript editor the other day, but it had no “undo” function, which made complex work impossible. Maybe I’ll try Amaya. Suggestions very much welcomed! Are imagemaps *that* uncool these days? They’re just SVG and image metadata in another notation… (and imho one of the the more interesting scenarios for HTML-based microformattery). That last link has missing photos and out of date SVG, but might still be of interest. A surviving screenshot included here.

Nearby: (from SWAD-Europe hacking days) an imagemap2svg.xslt thanks to Max Froumentin.

Update: I installed Amaya 9.99 for Intel MacOSX. Sadly it couldn’t even display my JPEG properly, although it did do a better job showing OmniGraffle’s SVG output than Firefox.
