« Back to Power Tags

A brief guide to embedding maps on pages.

Inline maps are a form of inline power tags which you can read more about on the power tags page. These will display any content tagged with lat:____ and lon:____ tags showing location, near the provided coordinates.

Basic usage is with [map:content:_latitude_:_longitude]; for example:

[map:content:29.9:-90.0] gets you:

[map:content:40.7:-73.9] gets you:

A good place to quickly find lat/lon for any place is (the URL will change as you pan around).

Zoom level

Note how if you specify more precise numbers (more digits), it doesn't search as widely. We'll soon update so that shorter (less precise) coordinates make for a more zoomed-out map.
