Embedding a Fusion Table map in a WordPress post

Just testing: a Google Fusion Table map embedded in a WordPress blog post.

Here’s the original Fusion Table table. That data is described in this Ottawa Citizen post by Glen McGregor.

Here’s the exact embed code used for the above map:

<iframe src="http://www.google.com/fusiontables/embedviz?viz=MAP&q=select+col6+from+2621110+&h=false&lat=43.50124035195688&lng=-91.65871048624996&z=5&t=1&l=col6" scrolling="no" width="100%" height="400px"></iframe>

That’s just the default output from the Fusion Table map visu­al­iza­tion, with the minor excep­tion of tweaking the height and width a bit to fit my post. That code is avail­able from within the Fusion Table visu­al­iza­tion page if you click the “get embed­d­able link” link. Here’s a screenshot:

I’m posting this because someone was having trouble with this process and I wanted to try it out myself. I didn’t have to make any mod­i­fi­ca­tions to my existing WordPress 3.3.1 instal­la­tion or theme to get it working.

Please note however that there is still a Conservative majority.

Update (later the same day): I’m pleased to see that Glen McGregor was able to embed the map on the the Edmonton Journal site, and wrote a telling article around it.
