Use an imagemap (client-side) in conjunction with a script that reads its
input from PATH_INFO. To explain: http://foo.org/cgi-bin/bar/baz invokes the
script bar with PATH_INFO set to 'baz' (I forget whether the leading slash is
included or not). You can grab the coords from this.

Left as an exercise to the reader how th do this ;-).

There are a couple dynamic image generators available on freshmeat.
Perlmagick will probably work.
