x = longitude

y = latitude

s = degree scale

w = pixel width of required image

h = pixel height of required image

id = After uploading you File you will be given a ID to be placed here.

Styles = set the color of the Route and thickness

     Id = all for everything, else it is the name of the source file in the zip. Eg stage1 (no extension)
     Lc = color in google kml format.

The json param is optional, so call can be xmlrequest

exclude=1 to make it only return points within the x,y,w,h,s limits, otherwise it returns all points for id. Line and Polygon structures are ignored.

id=comma delimited list of uf_ref values

Returns the following json structure:

{data : 
{id:?, points : [elementid:?, name:?, description:?, x:?, y:?],...},
{id:?, points : [elementid:?, name:?, description:?, x:?, y:?],...},

Click Test


x,y = the long/lat to test.

All polygons in the id list are checked and the first that contains x,y is returned.

Returns the following json structure:

{id:?, elementid:?, name:?, description:?}

Element Info
