The button “Embedded maps” allows you to view and delete the embedded maps created in the application.
Embedded maps are miniature maps created via the “Share” module, for display on external websites and blogs.
As a guest, or user without special priveleges, one can by default create a miniature map with two types of background maps, respectively: Standard and Gray scale. These background maps using open services from The Norwegian Mapping Authority.
As an administrator or privileged user you can create a miniature map that uses three types of background maps, respectively: Standard, Gray scale, and Norway in pictures. By default, these background maps use BAAT.
All WMS which is activated when the user creates an embedded maps will be included, even those who are defined through “own data”. All activated drawn objects and associated text are included.
Coordinates used in the application is WGS84 UTM Zone 33. All background maps and WMS added to an embedded map must support this coordinate system. The standard coordinate system can be changed (see “Configuration of embedded maps”).
A user with Administrator priveleges may create embedded maps with custom coordinate system, background maps, WMS, and vector data. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
