How to Embed a Google Map onto a Hive Page
We would like to embed a Google map as part of one of our Hives. Is this possible?
It is possible to embed a Google map within Digital Hive through the use of the Web page element.
- Open Google Maps so that the required map is displayed
- Click on the Share option
- From the Share menu, select the Embed a map tab
- Press the Copy HTML button
- Paste the copied text into a text editor
- Copy just the URL portion of the pasted text.
For example, using this copied Google link: <iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d2800.116520712743!2d-75.69324795719496!3d45.42715243578801!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x4cce050224c6125d%3A0x6a8bfab83c15afa4!2s78%20George%20St%2C%20Ottawa%2C%20ON%20K1N%200A8!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sca!4v1698181447841!5m2!1sen!2sca" width="600" height="450" style="border:0;" allowfullscreen="" loading="lazy" referrerpolicy="no-referrer-when-downgrade"></iframe>
Extract the URL so that just this portion remains: https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d2800.116520712743!2d-75.69324795719496!3d45.42715243578801!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x4cce050224c6125d%3A0x6a8bfab83c15afa4!2s78%20George%20St%2C%20Ottawa%2C%20ON%20K1N%200A8!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sca!4v1698181447841!5m2!1sen!2sca
- Copy the extracted URL
- Open the Hive where the Google Map needs to be embedded
- Click on the Hive Launcher icon and select Open Designer
- From the Elements panel, drag a Web page element onto a Hive Story Board page
- In the Properties panel for the Web page element, locate the URL property
