This article explains how to add a map to your blog post.

Contents

Introduction

Blogger at http://blogger.com is one of the most popular web blogging systems. To have a map inside a blog post would be cool, let's go through the steps of adding Nokia Maps to your blog post.

Prerequisites

Nokia 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 Nokia 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 type="text/javascript" src="http://api.maps.nokia.com/2.0.0/jsl.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
<div id="map" style="width:400px; height:400px;">
</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
var map = new nokia.maps.map.Display(
document.getElementById("map"),
{
'zoomLevel': 10, //zoom level for the map
'center': [19.119, 72.8957] //center coordinates
}
);
</script>

STEP 3

Post it! - it's done!

Note:

If you omit the zoom level value it will default to 0 (zero) and if you omit center, the coordinates will default to zero coordinates as well (0,0).

You can edit the map properties and change e.g. the zoom level and map center.
