Embeding exping map: Visualized Travel Itinerary with Ease

Vivien·Jun 27, 2024·14 min read

When I first experimented with exping's map embedding feature, I was astounded by its versatility and impact. This seemingly simple function revolutionized my approach to storytelling and travel itinerary.

In my document and blog writing, I frequently reference various places. With the ability to embed maps, I can now complement my textual descriptions with interactive maps directly on the page.

These maps allow me to show places and routes, while readers can zoom, pan, and explore details just as they would in Google Maps or Apple Maps (as demonstrated below). This enhancement has significantly elevated the reader engagement with my content.

Recently, while planning an intricate long-distance trip with friends, I was reminded of the power of embedded maps. We utilized collaborative mapping to consolidate all our information - transportation options, accommodations, individual places - onto a single map.

We then embedded this into our Notion travel itinerary. This approach streamlined our planning process, eliminating the need to juggle multiple apps or websites. Viewing the markers and routes on the map, we could almost feel ourselves already embarking on our adventure.

We're thrilled to see exping maps being integrated into various platforms, enhancing interactive experiences across the board. The benefits of using embedded maps extend even further:

  • Elevating content professionalism: A meticulously crafted map lends an air of expertise and authority to your content.
  • Boosting SEO performance: Embedded maps improve content discoverability, helping search engines index your work and expanding your reach.
  • Simplifying updates: When geographical information changes, you need only update the map, leaving the surrounding content untouched.
