If you’ve ever run into a situation where you needed to take multiple segments of an image and turn them into touchable areas – such as if you were working with a map you could split the image into many pieces and define touch handling for each segment or create an image map.

Here’s a user interface control submitted by Sung-Take, Kim that allows you to easily create complex image maps where each defined section of the image can receive touches. You can use a tool like Gimp to create the image maps then use the definitions for each segment with this control.

Included is an example using a map of the US with the coordinates for the shape of each state  defined within a Plist file.

MTImageMapView

You can find MTImageMapView on Github here.

A nice straightforward way to create working interactive image maps.
