Fulcrum Map Embeds

14 October 2014 by Jason Sanford

Data Shares make it easy to publicly share data collected in your Fulcrum apps in formats like CSV, KML and GeoJSON. We just launched a new feature that makes sharing your data even easier - Map Embeds.

Fulcrum Map Embeds allow you to easily create an embeddable map complete with a custom title, popup content, and map extent.

Access the Map Embed builder from the “Data Share” section on your app’s dashboard. From there you can change (or remove) your title and pick which fields to show in the marker popup. Your marker color will even match the corresponding status color for your record if you’re utilizing status fields.

When you’re done customizing your map just copy the markup found below the map and paste it in a website, blog post, or internal web application - anywhere you can paste an iframe.


  • For large or dense data sets check “Marker clustering?” and your map will load faster and look less cluttered.
  • Check “Current map extent” to start the map at a specific position. The map will zoom to the extent of all your records by default.
  • Adjust the size of your embedded map by changing the width and height parameters in the iframe markup. The map defaults to 100% width and 480px height.


If you have a feature you’d like to see added to Map Embeds let us know.
