Publishing Data

In GeoNode, each resource can be published in order to share it with other people. Once a Map has been published you can embed it in your web pages, your blog or your web site.

An easy way to accomplish that is to use an iframe. See the following steps:

  • Open the Map Information page and copy the URL

    ../../_images/map_url.png

    The Map Information Page URL

  • Add “/embed” to the URL so that it will be like this “http://master.demo.geonode.org/maps/11/embed”

  • Use this URL inside an html iframe as src value

    <iframe
      style="border: none;" height="400" width="600"
      src="http://master.demo.geonode.org/maps/11/embed"
    ></iframe>
    
  • Put this html block of code inside your web pages to display the map.

Saving an html file with this code you can test your map on your pc, look at the following picture.
