Embedding maps

In an effort to make more useful information available to local residents without being overly technical, part of what I have been working on is making simple maps to embed in a website.  These return some (hopefully) useful information.  There is a move away from monolithic web GIS applications that do everything to making spatial information available everywhere across a website.  These simple maps can be embedded on any page with the website.  Each map will only display information relevant to the content on the page.

Waste collection dates (custom complex map viewer)

My Location report (default complex map viewer)

Address search (address search)

Adopted core paths (simple map viewer)

Behind the scenes this is using open source MapGuide and a PostGIS PostgresSQL database.  The maps should work in all browsers although there are some issues with IE9 at the moment.
