Maps can be useful for displaying your offices, stores, location of the products that you offer, such as real estate, and many other information. You can display both static and dynamic maps on your pages using web parts and widgets.
You can use the following two map providers for displaying maps in Kentico:
- Google Maps – uses the Google maps API v3.
- To use Google maps web parts, you need to obtain a Google Maps API key and specify the key in the web part's properties
- Bing Maps – uses the Bing maps API.
- Certain Bing maps services require you to have a Bing maps account. As a Bing map account holder, you can create keys to use these services.
Each of these providers has its dedicated web parts and widgets.
You can see the web parts configured and working on the sample Corporate Site, under the Examples -> Web Parts -> Maps page of the content tree.
