Embed Multimap Maps - New

Embed Multimap Maps - New

Multimap have announced via the Microsoft LiveSide that it is now possible to embed Multimaps in your own websites and blogs.


View map of Greater London on Multimap.com
Birds Eye view of Greater London on Multimap.com
Get directions to or from Greater London on Multimap.com

The above map is the new service of embedding multimap maps.

What is New?
  • We [Multimap] launched a new service for small businesses, personal websites and hobbyists this week.
  • The service, available for free from Multimap.com, provides a single line of HTML to cut and paste into a web page.
  • The user gets a slippy map in a choice of map styles (TeleAtlas, Ordnance Survey and Barts) or aerial for anywhere in the world (US included, using VE maps and aerial).
  • The pasted HTML includes four hyperlinks back to Multimap.com:
    1. See this location on Multimap (for a bigger map, POI, business listings, etc)
    2. See this location in Birds Eye
    3. Get directions to this location
    4. Get directions from this location
  • The service is limited to 50,000 transactions per year (which we track) and cannot be used for internal apps (eg BI, CRM)
1. 50,000 transactions a year is not very many, would be better if this was a week or a day.
2. 4 hyperlinks seems to be overkill... 1 or 2 would look better.


Can you embed Multimaps maps? Yes but Multimaps FAQ has yet to be updated.

"No. Licensing restrictions imposed by our data suppliers mean that users are not permitted to display the maps within their own website - even if the user is linking to our website behind the image. However, maps without our advertising or branding are available for a fee. Please see our Business Services section for more information on our mapping options."
