Map
This Block adds a map to the page. This is useful if you want to show locations to the user, such as where to find something. A Data Source can be connected to the Map to load predefined target locations. The map can then be useful for displaying locations stored in a database.

Use Variables

Provider

If the Mode is Google or Google Static, the Provider API Key property is required for the Map.
This specified the provider of the Map. The default provider is Bing and can be changed to Google or Google static. If you have a customized map experience already set up on Google or Bing Maps, you can enter your Provider API Key.

Geo Json

A GeoJSON file of type .json, representing simple geographical features, can be uploaded to the App Files and overlaid on the Map.

Image
