An infoBubble must have a nokia.maps.geo.Coordinate and content which can be either provided as a string or as a nokia.maps.search.Location object.

API defines:

Extends nokia.maps.map.component.Component.
new nokia.maps.map.component.InfoBubbles ()
Options Interface defining the info bubbles' options (keys)


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

Important about Maps credentials

With Nokia Maps API you can start without having any credentials given, but you might face a performance gap. In order to get the full potential out of the offering, you must get the credentials that authenticate your application against the Services. Please read through the Location API.

For more information on how to obtain the credentials, please start with the Ovi Maps API Developers Guide section "Acquiring API credentials"


In this example we will create one infoBubble with video content from YouTube. Location is mumbai, where a info bubble would be shown with out youtube video.

Example code

<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://api.maps.nokia.com/2.0.0/jsl.js" charset="utf-8">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
<body style = "width:100%; height:100%;">
<div id="map" style="width:100%; height:100%;"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
var myInfoBubbles = new nokia.maps.map.component.InfoBubbles();
var myHTMLcontent = "<div class=\"myHtmlContent\">"+"<iframe width='425' height='349' src='http://www.youtube.com/embed/Nr41eRzUnrg' frameborder='0' allowfullscreen></iframe>"+"</div>";
var map = new nokia.maps.map.Display(document.getElementById("map"), // new instance of Nokia maps
components: [
new nokia.maps.map.component.Behavior(),
new nokia.maps.map.component.ZoomBar(),
new nokia.maps.map.component.Overview(),
new nokia.maps.map.component.TypeSelector(),
new nokia.maps.map.component.ScaleBar()
'zoomLevel': 10,
'center':[19.119, 72.8957]
map.set("baseMapType", map.SATELLITE);
myInfoBubbles.addBubble(myHTMLcontent, new nokia.maps.geo.Coordinate(19.119, 72.8957)) ;
