How to Create a Custom Google Maps Component in Framer
Jul 24, 2023
Framer provides Google Maps integration, which requires the use of longitude and latitude coordinates.
However, this may not always be the most accurate or efficient solution.
Fortunately, there is a better way to embed Google Maps in Framer using the embed link.
This article will guide you through the process of creating a custom Google Maps in Framer using the embed link.
Let’s dive in!
Understanding the Embed Link
The embed link for Google Maps provides a convenient way to embed a map on your website or application without the need for handling longitude and latitude coordinates manually.
It contains the necessary information to display the map, including the location, zoom level, and additional parameters.
To create an embed link for a specific location on Google Maps, follow these steps:
Navigate to the desired location on Google Maps.
Click on the “Share” option.
A dialog box will appear with two tabs: “Send a link” and “Embed a map.” Make sure the “Embed a map” tab is selected.
Copy the generated embed link by clicking on the “Copy HTML” button.
The copied link can now be used to embed the map in your Framer project by pasting it into the provided code snippet.
By following these steps, you can easily generate the embed link for a specific location on Google Maps and use it to embed the map in your Framer project.
This approach eliminates the need for manual handling of longitude and latitude coordinates, making the process more efficient and accurate.
