Parameters for use in a Google Maps URL (zoom level, position, map-type, etc; via StackOverflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/09/11

Thanks for StackOverflow user xordon for this answer:

This is current accepted way to link to a specific lat lon (rather than search for the nearest object).

http://maps.google.com/maps?z=12&t=m&q=loc:38.9419+-78.3020

  • z is the zoom level (1-20)
  • t is the map type (“m” map, “k” satellite, “h” hybrid, “p” terrain, “e” GoogleEarth)
  • q is the search query, if it is prefixed by loc: then google assumes it is a lat lon separated by a +
