Many of you will be familiar with the Google maps iframe insert that you can put into web pages and Facebook pages
Here are a couple of tricks to change the way it looks.
This is what the iframe insert looks like
<iframe width=”300″ height=”300″ frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no” marginheight=”0″
Remove the Google maps infobox
Add “&iwloc=near” to the end of the iframe src url
Get a satellite image of Google maps iframe
change ”&t=m” to “&t=k” and you will get the satellite image
Change it to “&t=h” to get a hybrid map (map and satellite).
Change the zoom level of Google maps iframe
The zoom level is controlled by the z parameter. The lower the number the more zoomed out you will be, so in this example I have changed it to “&z=3″
The highest it will go is ”&z=18″
There seems to be no way of changing the zoom control on the map which is a shame
