Linking directly to a hotspot

Please note that linking directly to a hotspot is only available for hotspots using the Show More Info action. You cannot link directly to hotspots using the Go to URL action as doing so would activate the spot and go to the spot’s URL.

Then you can visit this link directly to the First Arrondissement of Paris, which will highlight the First on the map and load the information about the First in the more info area.
