Hmmm.  When I worked alongside some of your folks (joint project -
I was at ESRIN) we used server-side imagemaps to let users select
points on a (geographical) map.  Any user without the map could
enter lat/long manually instead, and any clientside solution
(like scripting, or embedded java/flash) would raise more
serious accessibility problems (you'd want the serverside map
as a fallback for accessibility)!

OTOH, that used CERN HTTPD with CGI, not mod_imagemap.

Don't you have that kind of application any more?
