height

Typenon-negative integer
Mandatory?no
Available in Javascript viewer?yes (default: 100%)
Available in Automatic viewer?yes (default: 768)
Available in Static viewer?yes (default: 768)

The map's height in Pixel.

Only positive multiples of 256 (i.e.: 256, 512, 768, ...) are allowed for the automatic and the static viewer (due to the size of the OpenStreetMap tiles).

The Javascript Viewer allows arbitrary values starting from 170. Furthermore, the Javascript viewer allows to specify the map's width as percentage of the total width (e.g.: 60%). Note that you have to escape the percentage sign (i.e.: use “%25” instead of “%” in the URL)

Examples:
https://osm.quelltextlich.at/viewer-js.html?height=256
https://osm.quelltextlich.at/viewer-js.html?height=60%25
https://osm.quelltextlich.at/viewer-automatic.html?height=256
https://osm.quelltextlich.at/viewer-static.html?height=256
