Introduction

Blogger at http://blogger.com is one of the most popular web blogging systems. To have a map inside the map would be cool, so in this article we will go thru the steps how to add Ovi Maps into your blog article.

Prerequisites

Ovi Maps API supported web browser (basically any modern web browser)

A new or existing account at Blogger.com (http://blogger.com)


Implementation

We will create a new blog article using the online tools of Blogger. The example code will include the required HTML, JavaScript and styling needed to display the map. If needed, modify the paths and name of the file to suite your purposes.

Example code

Follow these steps to add Ovi Maps into your blog:

STEP 1

Open a new Blogger post editing window.

STEP 2

Copy and paste the following code into the post ('Edit HTML code' mode)

<script src="http://api.maps.ovi.com/jsl.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>
<div id="map" style="width:400px; height:400px;">
</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
var map = new ovi.mapsapi.map.Display(
document.getElementById("map"),
{
'zoomLevel': 10, //zoom level for the map
'center': [52.51, 13.4] //center coordinates
}
);
</script>

STEP 3

Post it! - it's done!

Note:

If you omit the zoomLevel it will default to 0 (zero) and if you omit center, the coordinates will default to zero aswell.

You can edit the map properties and change e.g. the zoom level and center. For more examples and a live Ovi Maps playground please go to:
