Searching in bbox.me

Bbox.me can be started in different ways.

If You hit the default link, http://bbox.me/bbox.html, a default bbox will be selected.

You can also start up with a bbox by referring to the ID: http://bbox.me/bbox.html?id=32

Either way bbox.me will zoom into the bbox and start in searchmode like this:


If You enter a placename Geonames Web-services will be queried for the location.

You can also search for bboxes by selecting “Show Menu” and then flip to “Search Bboxes”:


You can then search by keyword and select in the list.

If You press the “Play”-button for a bbox the URL will be launched at the place where it was saved.

If You press the “Select”-button the bbox will be active. If it is composed by bbox-tags they will be evaluated when You move around in the map.
