I’ve had loads of requests from people who want to put Flood Maps on their own web-site. Well, I’ve finally found a way to allow it, and still pay for my server.
Just place the following IFRAME code on your site, and voila!
<iframe style="width:600px;height:600px" src="http://flood.firetree.net/embed.php?w=600&h=600" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" marginheight="0"></iframe>
Note that the width and height of the IFRAME must be the same as the w and h parameters in the URL. You can also add any of the following parameters to the URL:
- ll — lat/long, e.g. 57.0,-1.3
- m — metres above sea level
- zoom — zoom level, up to a maximum zoom of 17.
- type — map type, roadmap|satellite|hybrid|terrain
You can copy all of these parameters from the link in the bottom-left corner of the Flood Maps page. Just navigate until you find the scene you want, and then copy the URL parameters into the above HTML fragment.
The frame contains a Google ad-unit, which should make enough money to offset the cost of serving all the additional map tiles. Here’s an example:
