Hello,

I am working on a project with the below iframe which points to a google map portal. Currently, the map loads the entire world view. I want to make it so it only loads a certain zoomed in portion of the map. I tried a few solutions through some research, but none worked. The only difference I could see between mine and others posted online is the .aspx extension to the map.


<iframe src="http://LOCAL SERVER PATH/GlobalMap.aspx?

maptype=TERRAIN&radar=true&Maintenance=No&State=PA"



width="100%" frameborder=0 height=400 width=400 scrolling=no align=center></iframe>

It appears from the source of that iframe that the map is supposed to show the state of PA.

You can build the code for an html iframe directly from Google Maps. Just display a map that shows the view you want and click the link icon. That will show you the iframe markup. You can also click customize and modify the size of the map that the iframe will display.

For example, using the criteria from the iframe in your original post, Google Maps generates this iframe markup:

<iframe width="400" height="400" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="https://maps.google.com/maps?ie=UTF8&t=h&ll=40.069665,-74.729004&spn=3.362828,4.383545&z=7&output=embed"></iframe>

I think that will work if we are just talking about standard Google maps, my problem is that we use it integrated with management software to show statuses that is why it is shown in aspx so there is a lot more going on behind the scenes. I just was wondering if there was an easy way of zooming in using this aspx.

If you are dynamically generating the src URL of the iframe then you would need to adjust the zoom level in the aspx code that generates the URL. In the src for the iframe you see the &z=9 part? 9 is the zoom level.

You could manipulate this on the client side as well using javascript. Here's an example where I included a dropdown list of possible zoom levels to choose from:
