Before Google thoroughly confuckulated Google Maps, I was easily able to pass an URL from my database of addresses and bring up a map that showed their location.
In the modern era, the same URLs still work, technically, but the resulting map shows the cracks in the sidewalks instead of the 12-15 surrounding crossstreets and intersections and nearby highways.
I’ve Googled and found several web pages wherein people seeking to incorporate zoom factors have been given advice but I can’t get it to work.
• Most such pages have people passing latitude and longitude instead of address, city, state, zip sequence as URL components. OK, I downloaded a conversion table that gives me lat and long based on US Zip or european postcode, and now I can generate URLs of this format:
The “z=n” is theoretically supposed to define the zoom but it doesn’t work; all three URLs bring up the same image with the curve of Braddock taking up the lower third of the map.
I’ve seen a variant or two and tried them but they all seem to be outdated.
Anyone got a working URL that incorporates zoom factor and doesn’t require information that I don’t have available to give?
