Vici.org

Please feel invited to link to Vici.org. As explained on this page, several methods are provided to link to specific views of the map . It is also possible to integrate the map in your own site. This can be done using the widget. For other forms of use or reuse, data services are provided.

Linking to a specific object on the map

To link to a map with a given marker selected (highlighted) and centered, call the /selectview.php script and append the parameter 'focus' with the numerical identifier of the location (marker). The identifier of a location is the numerical part of the the url of its page. So http://vici.org/selectview.php?focus=7859 links to a map with the Porta Negra (http://vici.org/vici/7859) centered.
A 'zoom' parameter may be supplied. Optionally, current day map labels can set to be either shown or hidden by setting the 'labels' parameter.

Some more examples of how to link to a specific object displayed on the map:

http://vici.org/selectview.php?focus=7863
Shows the Hercules Tower of A Coruña (http://vici.org/vici/7863). Zoomlevel is chosen automatically.

http://vici.org/selectview.php?focus=4255&zoom=15&labels=1
Shows the Colosseum of Rome (http://vici.org/vici/4255), zoomed in to a level to display the Forum Romanum. Current day map labels are shown.

Linking to an area on the map

You can link to a specific area on the map by providing the coordinates of the center point and a zoom level to the /selectview.php script. Optionally labels on the map can be displayed.

Some examples of how to link to a specific map view:
