Integrate clear colourful maps into your own website or application. Choose data sources and adapt colour, symbology, extent, background textures and line types to fully customise your map.

This page give some usage examples of the [[MapRestServiceApi|Map REST Service API]].

Be aware that these examples do *not conform to RFC 3986*, as the current implementation still doesn't follow the proposed syntaxis. It means that the syntaxis of these examples (and MapRest Services) may change in the coming weeks.

#### Basic Issues

39 24 Pere Roca Ristol
Map Image size is specified as 400 pixels width. It means the height will be 200 pixels (just the half). Attention: you cannot specify an odd number as width/height.
40 24 Pere Roca Ristol
41 24 Pere Roca Ristol
42 26 Pere Roca Ristol
A bounding box (bbox) is specified. We strongly recommend to use bbox if know it (for example if all your data is on the same zone).
43 25 Pere Roca Ristol
44 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
45 26 Pere Roca Ristol
We provide world country borders and all TDWG levels as background. This parameter must be specified in "l" parameter (l=earth in that example).
46 26 Pere Roca Ristol
47 26 Pere Roca Ristol
48 26 Pere Roca Ristol
Current codes for background layers are:
49 26 Pere Roca Ristol

-Country borders: earth
52 26 Pere Roca Ristol
53 26 Pere Roca Ristol

####  Recalculate Parameter
80 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
81 25 Pere Roca Ristol
We see here the "recalculate" parameter in action. 
82 25 Pere Roca Ristol
83 25 Pere Roca Ristol
When the bbox is not specified, the service will calculate it and try to fit the image to the specified dimensions (width/height). It can cause distorted images. 
84 25 Pere Roca Ristol
85 25 Pere Roca Ristol
86 25 Pere Roca Ristol
Recalculate=true (this is the default if nothing is specified) tries to avoid these distortions. It means also that in some cases the final image size will change as you can see in the first image.

#### Symbolize Parameters
128 34 Pere Roca Ristol
129 18 Andreas Müller
A more complex styling. The parameters for styling an area are:
130 27 Pere Roca Ristol
131 28 Pere Roca Ristol
132 27 Pere Roca Ristol
-Area fill color
133 27 Pere Roca Ristol
134 28 Pere Roca Ristol
135 27 Pere Roca Ristol
-Area stroke color
136 27 Pere Roca Ristol
137 28 Pere Roca Ristol
138 27 Pere Roca Ristol
-Area stroke width
139 27 Pere Roca Ristol
140 28 Pere Roca Ristol
141 27 Pere Roca Ristol
-Area stroke dash style: we currently provide 1_2,1_4,2_2,2_4,5_7 and 10_5 but it can change. First parameter determine the length in pixels to draw the line, and the second, the length in pixels to blank out the line. As example, 5_7 means a very dashed line (separated 7 pixels one line from another).
142 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
143 27 Pere Roca Ristol
144 33 Pere Roca Ristol
145 28 Pere Roca Ristol
We allways provide default values. So, you could even specify styles "a" and "b"  as a:|b: and the image will be generated. 
146 27 Pere Roca Ristol
147 28 Pere Roca Ristol
A style like b:0000ff~2  would mean 0000ff fill color and 2 pixels stroke width. The other parameters would be set as default.

#### Map Legends
161 18 Andreas Müller

A legend can be appended to your map in different positions. 
163 16 Andreas Kohlbecker
164 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
165 28 Pere Roca Ristol
Specify "title" parameter, associating to each style the desired legend. Also legend=1 and "mlp" (map legend position) 
166 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
167 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
168 28 Pere Roca Ristol

#### Using MapRest on a webmapping application
238 30 Pere Roca Ristol
239 43 Niels Hoffmann
All these mapping services can be used on a dynamic webmapping application like [OpenLayers](http://openlayers.org/.) 
240 30 Pere Roca Ristol
241 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
242 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
The question is that, if desired, we return back not an image but a file that specifies the path to the XML that is used for layer symbolization. 
243 31 Pere Roca Ristol
244 32 Pere Roca Ristol
245 31 Pere Roca Ristol
With some little javascript coding you can get dynamic maps (zoom in/out, panning...).
246 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
247 30 Pere Roca Ristol
248 30 Pere Roca Ristol
Some EDIT dataportals using this technology are PalmWeb (http://dev.e-taxonomy.eu/dataportal/palmae/) and Cichorieae (http://dev.e-taxonomy.eu/dataportal/cichorieae/)
249 30 Pere Roca Ristol
250 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
251 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
How to get this file to be integrated on webmapping application? just specify "img=false" and will get a JSON file that could be something similar to...

261 30 Pere Roca Ristol
262 30 Pere Roca Ristol
263 30 Pere Roca Ristol
264 30 Pere Roca Ristol
As you can see, there is the name of XML (SLD) files that provide symbolization for each of specified TDWG layer. Also the legend is specified there.
265 30 Pere Roca Ristol
266 30 Pere Roca Ristol
267 30 Pere Roca Ristol
With some javascript coding you can get dynamic maps. A big advantage of using these widgets is that they automatically calculate the scale at which the image has to be visualized. 
268 30 Pere Roca Ristol
269 30 Pere Roca Ristol
 By this way you can avoid distorted images that too often happen with "image" MapRest services.

296 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
297 1 Andreas Kohlbecker
298 10 Andreas Kohlbecker
299 32 Pere Roca Ristol
300 33 Pere Roca Ristol
Also a "q_layer" has to be specified. It must be the same than the background layer and is used to calculate the bbox.

ATBI sites like Gemer (http://www.atbi.eu/gemer/) and Mercantour/Alpi-Marittime (http://www.atbi.eu/mercantour-marittime/) are already using this service.
