OpenStreetMap

Tiles@Home tile information bookmark.

Posted by AndrewMcCarthy on 21 April 2008 in English (English)

In Firefox, create a bookmark with this location:

javascript:var%C2%A0s='%s'; url='http://tah.openstreetmap.org/Tiles/info.php?x=%s&y=%s&z=%s'; t=''; qc=0; chunks=url.split('%s'); for(i=0; i');

and set the bookmark keyword to something like "tah". You can then go the location bar and enter "tah" followed by the x coordinate, y coordinate and zoom level of the Osmarender tile you're interested in. For example:

tah 1976 1327 12
sends you to
http://tah.openstreetmap.org/Tiles/info.php?x=1976&y=1327&z=12

Odd, the bookmark cuts off half-way. Maybe the less-than sign? Trying again!

javascript:var%C2%A0s='%s'; url='http://tah.openstreetmap.org/Tiles/info.php?x=%s&y=%s&z=%s'; t=''; qc=0; chunks=url.split('%s'); for(i=0; i<s.length; i++){if(s.charAt(i)=='%22')qc=qc^1; t+=((s.charAt(i)==' '&&qc)?'^':s.charAt(i)); }args=t.split(/\s/); nurl=''; for(i=0; i<chunks.length; i++){nurl+=chunks[i]; if(args[i]!=undefined)%C2%A0{args[i]=args[i].replace(/\^/g,' '); nurl+=args[i]; }}location.replace(nurl,'< BR>');

This doesn't seem to work on firefox 3 beta 5 - the URL you get is:

http://tah.openstreetmap.org/Tiles/info.php?x=1976%201327%2012&y=&z=

i.e. it hasn't separated the numbers properly. Any suggestions?

No idea, I'm afraid. I'm now running the same version of Firefox, and it's fine. Are you putting any quotes around anything? It looks like Firefox is translating the spaces to %20, which seems to happen if you quote things.
