The term "pixmap" is short for "pixel map. A pixmap stores and displays a graphical image as a rectangular array of pixel color values.

while a pixmap that uses only a single bit to denote the color of each pixel is often referred to as a bitmap. Bitmap is also sometimes used to refer to any pixmap.
