Getting started

1. Requirements

This plugin depends on the following plugins and libraries and are pulled in by composer later on:

  • ext-gd

2. Installation

To install via Composer, use the command below, it will automatically detect the latest version and bind it with ~.

composer require wyrihaximus/staticmap

require 'vendor' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'autoload.php';

$width = 256;
$height = 256;
$zoom = 7;
$latitude = 0;
$longitude = 0;

$renderer = new StaticMap\Renderer(
    new Imagine(),
    new Box($width, $height),
    new StaticMap\LatLng($latitude, $longitude),
    new StaticMap\Tiles('http://example.com/tiles/' . $zoom . '/{x}/{y}.png')

use WyriHaximus\StaticMap\LatLng;

$renderer->addBlip(Blip::create(new LatLng(123, 456), 'http://static.wyrimaps.net/icons/blip.png'));
