      When you click on an area inside the defined (above) polygon, the web
      browser will goto the url in the href attribute ("some_resultsne.asp"). What
      you may want to do is have a href="some-resultsne.pl" that calls your
      application passing "Northeast", or have a
      href="mydbapp.pl?Where=NorthEast".
