    Basically the co-ordinates start (AFAIK) from the top left at 0,0 and end at the bottom left at the size of the image.

    So if your image is 100×200 the co-ordinates start at 0,0 and end at 100,200.

    You are limited to three shapes rectangles / circles and polygons.

    I would say that image maps are considered an old practise…often better options are available.
