Map Image API Developer's Guide

Choosing Map Language

User Story

The user wants to obtain a map in Russian, centered on a particular location and marking a second location that does not lie at the center of the map.

Request

The parameter ml specifies the language of the map. Here rus, selects Russian. The parameter ctr defines the geographic coordinates of the center of the map image and c specifies the position at which to place a marker. The center point parameter takes precedence over the position marker parameter if both do not fit in the map image.
