How to change the size of a google maps frame

hi,

I'd like to download a google maps in high resolution, to do this i need to adjust a frame to make it bigger than the screen whilst scaling up the contents. I can then use a frame grabber program to download the contents. Below is an example map of a small region of spain, is there a way to adjust the HTML code here to do this?

Thanks!

Append the iframe url with
&z=15

Adjust the number to whatever zoom level you want.

I am not sure you can control the resolution.  If you can then the properties to do it will be buried somewhere in the API.  So I suggest you explore the API or look around the Google support documentation.

I don't think you can do anything with markup.  At the very least it will require some scripting.  If you want, I I add the javascript topic to the Question.

Thanks a lot. Do you know what is the scale, or how I could calculate the correct scaling to capture the original bordering? In this example when scaling the iframe width x10, then by trial & error z=13 seems to do it.
