Right after Google announces embedding Google Maps with HTML, Gary Price reports that Ask City has also added an embedded map feature. Now it is easy to post a map or various local business directly on your web site. For example, let's say you want to meet up with friends at a local pizza shop. You can simply embed a map of those local pizza shops on your blog, have friends review them and then decide the place to meet.

Here is “how to do it:“

  1. First I locate pizza stores in a local area. As you can see, I added a circle around the area using the drawing tools.
  2. Click the embed link at the top of the page, it looks like this:

    Ask City Embed

  3. Pick a small or medium or large version of the map.
  4. Copy the code from the box.
  5. Embed the code in your blog.

You should see pizza stores in the 10010 area just below this line:

Notice how the embed feature also shows what I have drawn on the map, using the drawing tools.
