How to share share your maps on Instagram

You can can easily share your interactive maps on Instagram. We recommend creating the post using the Instagram App.

The Image

  • Open the map on your mobile phone.
  • For the best visual effect, we recommend minimizing the overview
  • Take a screenshot. On Android phones, press and hold the power and volume down buttons. On iPhone, press the Power button and the Home button at the same time.
  • You can now use this image to create your Instagram post.

Linking to the interactive map URL

Unfortunately Instagram doesn’t allow to include a clickable link within the caption of a picture. Linking to your map will depends on the type of Instagram account you have

Instagram Personal Account

A popular workaround is to use the caption to redirect the viewers to the link in bio on your Instagram profile. Something like: “Check out the Interactive Map, the link is in my profile”

Since the map URL can be long, we recommend using a URL shortener such as Google URL Shortener

 Instagram Business Account

If you have a business account, you can use the “Call to Action” button to add a link your map URL.
