Hello Joakim,

no it's not possible with the serializers that transform the SVGs to 
JPEG or PNG. The reason: they create only the image, but not the HTML 
code encessary for an image map. You must write a stylesheet which 
creates (based on the SVG) the imagemap HTML code. I have done this 
already a long time ago, must be at least 2 years. I don't know if the 
code is lost. But this code is not commonly usable I guess, it must be 
written at least a bit different for each SVG. If you have problems, 
simply ask.
