I'd like to embed an online map inside of a Word document for my geography task in school. I have the code for an iframe of a map at www.arcgis.com.

How do I insert it in the document? I'm using Word 2013.

  • @DaveRook Yes, I found a good solution: I embedded it as an online video. It will popup when clicked and will be interactive. Insert -> Online Video -> paste embedding code. Feb 13, 2014 at 16:41

You can copy the HTML code of the iframe to Word but the online map won't show up as Word can't display the output of HTML code like a web browser.

  • A web server doesn't display the HTML, a web browser however does. Aug 2, 2017 at 8:05
