What is a good alternative to using an image map generator?


I have a large image and I want to make certain sections of the image clickable. I also want to specify the shape of the clickable area (square, circle, custom). Without relying on Javascript, how can I use CSS and HTML to create an interactive image-map? With hoverable "hot spots" and highlighting areas without relying on generating SVG coordinates. All of the online image map generators I found using Google, did not deliver what I perceive as a standard basic function of any imagemap tool.

GIMP ( Graphic Image Manipulation Program) does a pretty good job... http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/create-image-map-gimp/
