PopGIS 2 - Embed a PopGIS2 map into a webpage

The standard interface for a PopGIS2 site includes the banner on top and text section on the left. A more simplified interface can be used to create online atlases, monographs, newsletters etc.

Open the PopGIS2 site you would like to embed, select the indicator, and if desired, zoom to an area of interest. When you are happy with the result, go to the GET menu on the top-right of the screen and select a link to this page:

Then select whether you would like a direct URL or iframe URL:

The direct URL is a link to a standard PopGIS2 interface:
