You can include OpenSeaMap in various ways to the website:


Embed as Static Map

Static Map

The easiest way you show a static image, and link it with the full map of OpenSeaMap:

  1. Search in OpenSeaMap the appropriate map section
  2. Press the key Print, so you copy the whole screen
    with the key combination <Alt-Print> you can selectively copy the currently active window
  3. Open an image editing program of your choice and add the screenshot with <Strg-v>
  4. Draw the desired information (text, lines, circles, areas)
  5. Save the image on your computer
  6. Load the image to your Web server
  7. Include the uploaded image in the article:
<img src="Path/Filename_of_Image" alt="Alternative_text" width="Width" height="Height">
Link a static map to the full screen map
with Link to Fullscreen Chart

You can link the map directly to OpenSeaMap. So by clicking on the map you opens the fullscreen map of OpenSeaMap in a new window. There you can zoom and move freely:

  1. Search in OpenSeaMap the appropriate map section
  2. Copy the permalink (on the map bottom right) by <Ctrl-c>
  3. Add the full permalink to your code by <Strg-v>
<a href="Permalink">
<img src="Path/Fileame_of_Image" alt="Alternative text" width="Width" height="Height">


<a href="">
<img src="../MapFullscreen.png" alt="show 'Teepott Warnemünde' to the chart" width="200" height="133">

Embed as Slippy-Map

You can embed OpenSeaMap also dynamically on the site. Users will see your chosen section and the appropriate zoom level in the first load. He can zoom and move freely.

<iframe width="425" height="350" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" 
style="border: 1px solid black"></iframe>
<a href="">Größere Karte anzeigen</a>

The yellow-marked values of the variables have the following meaning:

width With of the chart (pixel)
height Height of the chart (pixel)
bbox "Bounding-Box" (the 4 corners of the selected chart)
lat Latitude of the chart center
lat Longitude of the chart center
zoom Zoomlevel of the chart (4...18)

HTML code to embed in the map:

		<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>

		<style type="text/css">
			.olImageLoadError {
				display: none !important;

			(here we bring it from the remote site, but you could
			easily serve up this javascript yourself) -->

The OpenSeaMap tile server is accessible at this URLs: 

The seamark-layer is added with the following lines:

var layer_seamark = new OpenLayers.Layer.TMS ( "seamark", "", 
{ numZoomLevels: 18, type: 'png', getURL:getTileURL, isBaseLayer:false, displayOutsideMaxExtent:true });


In WordPress Blog there is a plugin to integrate slippy OpenSeaMaps:

In the Drupal-Center-Forum you can find some solutions with MappingKit:

In the TYPO3 Extension Repository you will find 2 extensions:

  • rb_osmsimple (separate records for markers)
  • ods_osm (Coordinates in fe_users and tt_address records)
