I have a country map with regions outlined on a webpage. I want to make each region a seperate image and/or link. Taking a map of the US as an example, making each state a seperate image and/or link. Can anyone advise on what tool(s) is/are best to use to achieve this?

Image map (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image_map)?

Something along that line yes, where each state would be clickable as a link, though not necessarily as a seperate image.

I would look heavily into a program called xcelsius

it can export out to .swf and work nicely with a webpage

It's can pretty much do anything with a map you would ever need

I know that you can use photoshop to slice the image and it will even do the HTML for you.

Then just make each slice a clickable link and you should have exactly what you wanted.

Hope that helps.

Just FYI, I tried this one that was recommended earlier in this thread and it worked well for me:
