The embeddable concept map editor eCmap is part of the CmapTools software suite that enables the embedding of a Cmap editor into a host Web page. By providing a set of flexible APIs to the host page, different sets of functionalities can be made available to the user depending on the needs of the application where eCmap is embedded. eCmap is designed to be part of the CmapTools network and can fully interact with CmapServers and the Cmap Cloud. In this paper we describe eCmap, and we present several sample cases of its use, including CmapTools in the Cloud (the Web-based version of CmapTools), the CmapViewer, an integration to implement Cmap- based test items in online tests, and a Web page to evaluate Cmaps automatically.
