How to specify the coordinates of an area in HTML5 ?
  • Last Updated : 08 Mar, 2021

In this article, we will see how to set the coordinates of the <area> element in HTML5. The coords attribute of <area> is used to specify the coordinate of an area in an image-map. The shape attribute is used to specify the size, shape, and placement of the area. The coordinates (0, 0) denotes the top-left corner of the sketch.

Syntax:

<area coords="value">

Example: In this example, the three shape areas are specified with the shape parameter and coordinates so that they can be clicked on to view the shape.
