Frequently Asked Questions

How do I overlay a KML file on my embedded map?

The embedded map shows the location of your devices on your web page. If you want to show other points of interest, like your planned travel route, destination sites and so on, you can subscribe to the KML Overlay service. A subscriber can upload KML file to our server. Then append a string to the iframe src attribute as described below.



Open upload page to upload your KML. Then append the string from column "Url String" to the iframe src attribute. For example, on the upload page, the "Url String" for your KML file is "&file=1/demo99/destination.kml". This is the BEFORE iframe string.
    <iframe style="width: 600px; height: 400px" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" 
    src="//www.followmee.com/maps.aspx?key=KEY&username=USER_NAME&function=currentforalldevices">
    </iframe>
    
This is the AFTER iframe string after appending the required string.
    <iframe style="width: 600px; height: 400px" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" 
    src="//www.followmee.com/maps.aspx?key=KEY&username=USER_NAME&function=currentforalldevices&file=1/demo99/destination.kml">
    </iframe>
    
This demo page shows an embedded map with KML overlay. Viewing source of this page shows the iframe code.
