Customize what information is displayed to a prospective buyer, and what actions they can take, on a live view maps of your LotWorks communities.
How to get one setup
If you're an existing LotWorks customer with a community in need of a public website map, please open a new ticket with Blueprint to get it going. There is a cost per community involved in setup, and typically a 3-5 day turnaround time for release.
LotWorks Maps can be loaded to public websites quickly and easily using our Google Maps embed process. There are two main options for public websites:
Embedded LotWorks Maps
A Google Maps -enabled public website map is available. This pulls live LotWorks data from your system, to display a public lot status map on your websites.
An example of standard LotWorks Maps implementation:
This is a simple <iframe> embedded within a page. All information is provided by LotWorks.
Loading a LotWorks Maps onto your website is as easy as loading Google Maps itself to your website. Blueprint will provide you with a "code snippet", allowing your website developers to drop in the HTML code, and have the maps displaying in no time.
Additionally, CSS files can be used to override the default colours, fonts, etc.
The map images themselves are hosting on the LotWorks system, and loaded as a "background image" on the maps. Whenever you make a change in LotWorks, it is instantly reflected on your websites.
Technical details and instructions for loading Google Maps can be obtained by contacting Blueprint as we tailor the instructions for your specific communities and maps. The information that is displayed on the sites is entirely up to you.
Some basic information for your Web Developers can be found here: Technical Details.
Custom API Data Feed
LotWorks can also provide a custom data feed using our API that will feed lot information directly to your website developers. They will then be able to use this information to display lot and home data on their websites using LotWorks lot information.
An example of custom API implementation:
This website uses the website developer's own maps and all data, and on-click actions / status and mouse-over information is fed from LotWorks API. The output from the feed is a list of lot data, and looks like this:
For inquiries regarding Data Feed implementation, please contact your Account Manager.
Disable Phase on Public Map
Land developers may disable individual phases on their communities' public maps using the "Disable Phase on Public Map?" toggle found under Community > Phase > Edit Phase.
If you don't see a new phase on your public website map, please check that this is enabled.
