Why embed a MappedBy report on your website?

Industry professionals such as realtors, property managers and really anyone dealing with property addresses want to provide a great user experience. For most of your website visitors this will mean providing insight and data that stands out and works to build their trust, and by adding our embed module you are doing just that.

4. Customize the input data for the embed code

 

In order to show the intended report details, modify the url of the embed to match the property. There are 2 inputs you can configure:

elementId (required)

This will tell us where you want this data to render. Be sure to apply the class "mappedby-embed" as is shown in the example or you might find the embedded content does not render correctly.

address (required)

The full address of the property (or as much of it as you have). If you do not have the full address this may result in us returning the incorrect report data. You should urlencode this data.

coordinates (optional)

If you do not provide these details, we will extrapolate them from the address on your behalf. If you provide invalid coordinates, or coordinates that are not precise enough, we will ignore your inputs. While we strongly recommend providing coordinates, if you do not know the correct coordinates we do not encourage you to provide this data unless you are confident they are accurate as it may result in unexpected results.

 

In some cases addresses will not geocode to the intended locations, in these rare instances providing the coordinates via this means will resolve the issue. You should still provide the correct address in these cases as we use it for other purposes throughout the report.

5. Verify it is working

You should now be able to see our widget on your website. The expected result should look similar to the following. If you want to customize the embed or have any questions at all, please reach out!
