Displaying maps

You can display both static and dynamic maps on your pages using web parts and widgets. Maps can be useful for displaying your offices, stores, location of the products that you offer, such as real estate, and many other information.

Map displaying office locations on the sample Corporate site

You can make use of the following two map providers for displaying your maps:

  • Google Maps - use the Google maps API v3.
  • Bing Maps - use the Bing maps API.
    • Certain Bing maps services require that 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 a widget.
