Embedded Map Player
August 24, 2010
The new Spinscape embedded map player facilitates information sharing by allowing you to include a Spinscape map on your web page or in your blog. With the embedded map player, anyone can view a presentation created with your Spinscape map. The presentation can be stopped and the map can be explored.
To get an embedded map you’re going to:
* Create a map
* Create a presentation of the map
* Get the embed code
* Embed the map on your webpage or blog
* Explore the map with the embedded map player
To get started, create or open a map in Spinscape. Then go to View > Presentation Mode. Create a presentation of the map by adding slides of the desired views of your map. Click on the clock icon to extend the time frame designated for a slide. Edit the presentation by deleting slides or dragging to rearrange the order of slides.
When your presentation is complete, create an embedded map which captures the presentation to embed on a webpage or blog. The embedded map is an interactive map as well. This means you can stop the presentation and explore the map manually.
To create an embedded map:
* Go to File > Embed Map
* Edit the width and/or height, if needed
* Select Autoplay and/or Repeat, if desired
* Click the Get Code button. which automatically copies the embed code to the clipboard
To share an embedded map:
* Open your webpage or blog editor
* Paste the Embed Map code where desired
* Save the changes/Update the page
View your webpage or blog to see the embedded map presentation. Click on the magnifying glass to zoom in or out. Use the map player controls to manually advance through or pause the presentation. When the presentation is paused, it becomes an interactive map for you to explore. The embed button on the map player displays the Embed Code so others can share your map on their site.
The Embedded map player in Spinscape is an interactive map viewer so you can share, view, and explore a map outside of the application.
