 * ISMAP coordinate tool  by Jim Davis (
 *    written on Sep 30,  4:34pm.
 * Has anyone yet built a tool to facilitate creating the sets of
 * rectangle definitions needed for an ISMAP image?  I have one
 * about 1/3 finished, but suddenly was struck by the thought that
 * someone ELSE may already have one working.  In an unusual attack
 * of conscience I decided to ask the net instead of just hacking
 * away anyway.  Sooooo  has anyone written such a thing yet?
 * And if not, what would be a reasonable output format?  I've
 * seen the format in HTTP://pulua/
 * Is everyone using their format for ISMAP, or are other formats
 * also in use?  (e.g. in the floorplan demo at
 * or the active room
 * at
 * (I can't find the "fish picture" anymore.  What does it use?)

The fish picture might be referring to the demo I put together for NCSA
  httpd, and can be found at URL

I used xv to put together the coordinates, and the imagerect.conf
  format described in the server's docs as an output format.
