static maps

From IndieWeb

static maps are a way to show a map as an image on a web page without requiring a javascript library.

IndieWeb Examples

Aaron Parecki

Aaron Parecki uses a PHP Static Maps library to display static maps on his event posts as well as on walk/run/bike/drive posts when shown in the list view.


Jeena Paradies uses the the OSM static map service to display static maps under pictures with geo data to show where they were taken. He also caches every picture to go easy on the free service.

Marty McGuire

Marty McGuire uses a PHP library staticMapLite โ€” with Stadia's map tile service hosting Stamen's Toner tiles โ€” to display static maps on his checkin posts. staticMapLite caches tile images once created.
