This feature allows layers to be sent as a parameter in a URL to tell XMAP or Parish Online to load a particular layer.

NOTE: this is an experimental feature so it a) may not work, and b) isn't fully-featured yet.

URL Example

Here's a URL example:


NOTE: the permalink (#map= section) must be last in the URL.


URL Format


Root: https://xmap.cloud/maps?

Layers: (comma delimited string of layer id’s (or table names in your case), e.g


Filters: (comma delimited in the format LAYER:CQL_FILTER


Filters need to follow the CQL filter format, they will fail for example if you don’t quote your strings!


Position: (we currently only accept this permalink format for position, but will expand it to use URL params if they are provided)
