Configuring Your Map

Configuring Your Map: Your Basic Settings

Target Layer

The first thing you’re going to need is a target DIV to put the map in. Give that target an id like this.

<div id="mapsplus"></div>

In the basic map configuration there is only one setting that you’ll need to edit.

mapKey: This is your API Key available in the map customization screen or directly from us as part of your getting started kit.

Map Options

Next up we’ll specify the default map options including the zoom level and starting coordinates of the map

zoom: This is the starting zoom level, commonly 18 or 19. Range is 5-22.

starting: The starting latitude and longitude of the center of the map.

Map Tile Options

We use the customMapBounds to describe the boundaries of the box to narrow down the area within which map tiles will be requested. This will need to change for each map.
