Image Mapping (Different clickable parts within an image e.g. a World map)
Please add an option for image mapping i.e. an image can have several hyperlinks e.g. home page has a big image and clicking on different parts of image takes to different pages within the SP site or externally... This is very crucial esp for communication sites where message is conveyed more via icons/images etc and visitors are not reading so much into text.
@Andy: could you please share an example of a Modern site where you managed to use this map saved as an aspx? I can't manage to perform this successfully

In Modern pages some of previous sites using classic pages are using such kind of feature... This is very usefull when a process is supported by different pages, so that, in each box in the process we need to create a link to the corresponding page... And as the previous SP2013 will need to migrate to SPO, such kind of feature need to be provided...

We have image maps in several areas and they come in very handy for just the reason the suggestion gives. Microsoft could by an image map tool, embed it in SharePoint, and allow us to draw clickable areas on a canvas ourselves.
1. Place ImageMap web part onto a Modern page
2. Upload image you want
3. Click a button inside the web part properties to start defining a clickable area
4. Draw that area with your mouse on the image
5. Web part saves the area; define URL for it to point to
6. Set attributes like Open in New Window/Tab (and don't limit to just http:// links; give us FTP, file, mailto:, onenote:, and other protocols!)
7. Rinse and repeat for as many clickable areas as we want (no small limits please)
This is the kind of feature that would really make Modern usable, friendly, and powerful.

Using image tools to build the image map doesn't work in modern sharepoint pages, only in classic pages.
This can be achieved by using an image tool such as GIMP to create the image map and then save the resulting code as an aspx page. Upload this to a library on your site and then on the modern page, use an embed web part to the saved page.
