You can embed a fully-functional interactive TimeMap TMJava map in your
web pages simply by including a few lines of html. This is a no-cost
method of putting interactive maps on your web site without
installation of any complex or expensive software on your web server.
Embedded maps can draw on the increasing number of free-access datasets
registered in the ECAI Metadata Clearinghouse. These include worldwide
background maps as well as more local datasets.
Here is a simple
example of html code which displays a fully interactive TimeMap map:
code="org.alov.viewer.SarApplet" name="mapApplet" archive="TMJava.jar"
align="middle" height="400" width="600"> <param name="pid"
The MapSpace rendered in the map, indicated by the value of pid is registered as
number 1 in the ECAI clearinghouse. A local MapSpace (.tms) file can also be
used in the pid
parameter. For a more detailed discussion of embedding TimeMap TMJava maps
into your html pages, please see the TMJava User Manual Chapter 2
Many further examples can be found in our Examples pages (see menu on
left). Right click the page just outside these maps and select View
Source to see the HTML code used to embed the map (search for the applet tag).
The code above displays the following interactive map (this map is actually being generated live - try it):
Maps embedded in this way must be acknowledged as specified in the
Acknowledgment page (see under Download TimeMap in the menu on the left).
you intend to use TMJava in a 'production' environment (such as on an
organisation's web site, a teaching web site, a museum visitor kiosk or
a CD-ROM), whether for-profit or not-for-profit, we ask you to join the
TimeMap Open Source Consortium or negotiate an individual license for your
application of TimeMap.
