Embedding a mapping service like Google Maps into a website is pretty easy (i.e. using their API, which has recently been updated for mobile performance).
What are the most important UX considerations when wire-framing this implementation on a contact-page, with the intent of using them to locate a business?
I have yet to find a comprehensive guide, but have come up with:
- Decide whether to use static (image) or dynamic (zoomable) maps.
- For dynamic, don't fill the screen either horizontally or vertically, otherwise it'll be difficult to scroll (accidental zooming).
- If using static, make them clickable and lead to dynamic.
What else is there? Any research (if it exists), case studies, or your experience would be useful.
