Easy Public Web Maps

Many conservation organizations have or would like an interactive map of their properties on their website. Usually creating and maintaining such a map requires a lot of time and technical expertise. Since all of the data that you'd likely want on such a map is already in LANDSCAPE, wouldn't it be great if LANDSCAPE could generate that map and keep it updated for you? It can!

There is now a Public Map section under Settings. From there you can create an HTML widget that you add to your website that will display a map right from the data in LANDSCAPE. You can choose which properties get displayed and can control their styling and popup window content.

The beauty is that there is no longer anything you need to do to add newly protected properties to your map - just complete them in LANDSCAPE and it happens automatically.

Here's a Knowledge Base article that explains the settings.

I hope some of you find it useful.
