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:
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:
Links to a map with location 55.012333, -2.337620 (latitude, longitude) and zoom factor 10. Labels on the map are not shown. This example gives an overview of the Hadrian wall.
This example links to the area of the German limes, zoom factor 6, labels on the map are shown.
