Hi all,

I would like to embed a Google Map in a PreTeXt document?

Is it possible to do that just like it is possible to embed a Desmos graph, for instance?

Thanks for your help,
Julien

There is a version of "interactive" which has an "iframe" attribute. Perhaps that would do the trick?

I can't check details easily for a while. Look in sample article for a "PhET" example interactive to mimic?

This does the trick.
It suffices to click on share/embed to obtain the correct iframe source.

Thanks a lot Rob.

Great! Thanks for the ACK.

Post your one line of code here if you wish and I'll add it to the sample article?

Here is some code that allows to embed a Google Map of California in e PreTeXt document.
Note that the iframe https address was obtained by using the sharing capabilities of Google Maps.

Now incorporated into the sample article as Figure 15.7. HTML, and static in
PDF. Thanks, Julien, for the question and the contribution.
