  • Simple image MediaWiki Extension

Installed on this wiki, this extension is also available to (well copy & paste) from the Simple image MediaWiki Extension page. It simply puts a map image on the wiki page by referencing the flexible image generating interface created by User:Ojw.

This supports wiki markup of the form <map lat="51.485" lon="-0.15" z="11" w="300" h="200" format="jpeg" /> So inside a map tag, you specify parameters 'lat', 'long', 'z' (zoom level), 'w' (width in pixels), 'h' (height in pixels), and 'format'

The extension simply renders an <IMG> tag with the src set to a URL like this one:,-0.15&zoom=11&size=300x200&maptype=mapnik
