NNM Map Viewer

Simple map functionality with capabilities of showing markers and lines.


The map is created from parameters defined in the URL. The simplest map only needs parameters for latitude and longitude coordinates defining the origo and a zoom level, everything else is optional.

Valid parameter values

Mandatory parameters

The map is initially centered at coordinates defined by the origo parameter.
Example: origo=69.00,19.00.
The map has an initial zoom level.
Example: zoom=12.

Optional parameters

A title can be defined.
Example: title=My%20own%20special%20title.
point0, point1, ..., point9
pointN is an array of coordinates for which a polyline should be drawn between each consecutive point (order is therefore important). A polyline can be shown between (at least two) coordinates defined with the pointN parameter. Each point is defined by latitude and longitude coordinates.
Example: point0=69.059969,10.9575&point0=55.336944,10.9575.
You can draw up to ten distinct polylines. Use a different suffix number, 0-9, for each of them.
Example: point0=6,1&point0=6,2&point0=7,1&point1=8,5&point1=7,7&point1=8,9&point1=7,3 will draw two distinct polylines.
marker is an array of coordinates where a marker should be placed. Markers can be shown for (one of several) defined points.
Example: marker=6.90,7.23 or marker=6.90,7.23&marker=69.2203,17.1234.
A marker can be shown for origo (showMarkerForOrigo=true).
If you click in the map, the current coordinates will popup (showCoordinates=true).
Show the smallest possible circle, centered at origo, that "surrounds" every marker defined (showCircle=true).
Show the smallest possible rectangle that "surrounds" every marker defined (showRectangle=true).
Uses polygons instead of polylines when connecting points (usePolygon=true). This means that the last and first points in every list of points are connected with an implicit line.

A link to a similar view in Google Maps is also shown.

Convert DMS coordinates to decimal

Here is a simple tool which you can use to convert coordinates in DMS (degrees, minutes, seconds) to decimal. For example 69°15'20" (DMS) is the same as 69.255556 (decimal).

NNM Map Viewer was originally implemented by Anders Gustafson in November 2018.
