How to embed a Google Map in HTML
It is as simple as finding your address, copying the embed code, and pasting it into your HTML. These maps are interactive, but they are fundamental.
Access the Google Maps API for more advanced capabilities, such as directions or displaying location data.
Here’s how to make a simple Google Map:
1. Visit the Google Maps site.
2 Search for the place you wish to include in your embedded map.
3. Use to Share. Alternatively, click on the three horizontal lines at the top left corner to choose Share and embed map from an open menu.
4. To see a preview, click Embed a map. You can adjust the map area, zoom, type (street or satellite map), and size (including custom sizes if desired).
5. Click Copy HTML when you are ready to embed.
6. Copy the embed code to the HTML file where you want the map displayed on the page. It will look like this (it might look different depending on the size of your map).
The embedded map is now static. It will remain 600 pixels wide and 400 pixels high, regardless of what device it’s displayed on or how large the browser window is.
This could provide a better user experience. Many visitors, especially those using mobile devices, can only see part of the map at a time. To view the map, they will need to scroll horizontally or vertically.
This problem can be solved by making our embedded map responsive using HTML and CSS.
