Stickymap has over 15,000 Locations

Thursday, December 20th, 2007

Our data counter has recently passed 15K, just in time for the new year!  As the number of documented locations on Stickymap grows, we become a richer resource for learning about neighborhoods across the nation and around the world.

I’d like to thank our users for helping us reach this milestone.  We rely so much on your input, and the reliability of our data has been far better than we had anticipated.

Embed Stickymap on Your Site using an iFrame

Sunday, December 9th, 2007

Today we launch the beta version of our embeddable application for your use. You can find an example of an embedded Stickymap application here:

In order to embed the same map on your site, please insert the following into your HTML file:

<iframe src=”″
frameborder=”0″ marginwidth=”0″ marginheight=”0″
vspace=”0″ hspace=”0″ width=”900px” height=”600px”>

Notice that the height and width parameters are set twice in this example, once after “mappage.php” where we say w= and h=, and then another time later. The w=800&h=500 specifies the height and width of the map in pixels, while 900×600 represents the size of the entire iFrame. It’s a good idea to give the iFrame some buffer size around the map in order to prevent scroll bars from cropping up. to Launch Embeddable Widget

Wednesday, December 5th, 2007

Stickymap will soon launch a widget that you can embed in your own site using an iframe. You can view the widget here:

Information on how to integrate this widget onto your site will be coming soon.
