  • “Map” is not a commonly used word at all in this context. You will have some difficulty getting the way you have used it to match up to any of the listed meanings for “map”. What made you use this word? The first might more idiomatically be simply called a “sketch” or a “diagram” or even a “picture”. The rest are “images”, “photos” or “pictures”. A more likely way to say an image is “with notation” is to say it is “labeled”. – Orbital Aussie Jan 24 at 21:50
  • @OrbitalAussie Thanks. Per you comments, img_1 is a labeled sketch, img_2 is just an image, img_3 is a labeled image, right? – zghqh Jan 24 at 22:06

All three are images so I would avoid "image" when trying to distinguish them. I would call the first one a 'diagram with explanatory notes."

Here is a definition of diagram: "a graphic design that explains rather than represents especially : a drawing that shows arrangement and relations (as of parts)."

I would not call it a sketch, which means "a rough drawing representing the chief features of an object or scene and often made as a preliminary study."

It is not that "sketch" is wrong; it is merely that "diagram" is a better fit for what is being mentioned.

The other two images appear to be photographs rather than diagrams or sketches. For the third, I might say "photograph with with added explanatory markings and notes."
