We're excited to announce another fantastic new feature that we've just launched today. If you run a blog or any other type of website, you can now embed route maps from plotaroute.com directly into your web pages, in the same way that you can embed YouTube videos. The embedded map has full animation capabilities in both 2D and 3D (for browsers with the Google Earth plugin) and gives visitors to your website direct access to detailed directions, elevation profiles and route statistics for your route. They can also print, download and share the route directly from your website.
You can embed any route that you've saved publically on plotaroute.com. Just click the SHARE icon in the Action Bar in the bottom right corner of the route planner and then copy and paste the provided HTML code into your webpage. You can choose from a variety of sizes and a full screen option is available in most browsers (requires version 11 for Internet Explorer).
