How to link to us for a map

 
 

Linking by Postcode

To link by post code to a map, simply use the following format:

http://streetmap.co.uk/postcode/<postcode>

replacing <postcode> with the postal code that you would like a map for. E.g.:

http://streetmap.co.uk/postcode/mk56fe
http://streetmap.co.uk/postcode/mk5_6fe
http://streetmap.co.uk/postcode/mk5 6fe
http://streetmap.co.uk/postcode/mk5%206fe

A space in the postal code is not necessary, but if represented use either a space, underscore, + symbol or %20 (hex code for a space).

 

Linking by grid coordinates

To link by grid coordinates (northings and eastings) to a map, simply use the following format:

http://streetmap.co.uk/grid/<grid>
or

http://streetmap.co.uk/grid/<grid>_<zoom>

replacing <grid> with the grid coordinates that you would like a map for. Optionally the <zoom> value can also be specified to set a specific zoom scale. The zoom scale, if specified, should be one of the following:

106 Full street scale
110 Street scale
115 Town 25k scale
120 Town 50k scale
126 Full road scale
130 Road scale
140 County scale
150 Region scale

The coordinate values and zoom value must be separated by a space, underscore, comma, + symbol or %20 (hex code for a space). The following list show examples of linking by grid coordinates:

http://streetmap.co.uk/grid/527383_174495_120
http://streetmap.co.uk/grid/527383,174495
http://streetmap.co.uk/grid/527383,174495,120
http://streetmap.co.uk/grid/527383 174495
http://streetmap.co.uk/grid/527383 174495 120

 

Search linking is linking to us providing a search location that will invoke the search as though it was done on our home page:

http://streetmap.co.uk/loc/<searchphrase>

replacing <searchphrase> with your search term. E.g.:

http://streetmap.co.uk/loc/seaham
http://streetmap.co.uk/loc/seaham+street
http://streetmap.co.uk/loc/01908574080

Search terms can also be lat/long or other grid coordinates:

http://streetmap.co.uk/loc/N52.038333,W4.578611
http://streetmap.co.uk/loc/527383,174495
