Map PageType Tutorial

The Map type page allows to display the Google map with multiple locations. Locations are determined by latitude/longitude coordinates and are marked by pins on the map. It is possible to provide each location with a brief description and a link to a target URL of a page containing detailed description of the location.

The page should be tested on AprendeApps previewer app (The image in the web simulator has no clickable areas). Editing is done in Edit Map Page.
