I have recently come across a site with Awesome Maps and Weather radar. The site is Windy.com and they offer a Free API and also will generate an embedded widget displaying any location on the map. Is there a php script available which can be modified to display this "widget?"  For example:  It says... Embed this HTML code in your page.  <iframe width="650" height="450" src="https://embed.windy.com/embed2.html?lat=25.912&lon=-80.397&zoom=9&level=surface&overlay=radar&menu=&message=true&marker=&calendar=&pressure=&type=map&location=coordinates&detail=&detailLat=25.912&detailLon=-80.397&metricWind=default&metricTemp=default&radarRange=-1" frameborder="0"></iframe>

This is a "snapshot" of the larger map I would like to display for example.  I have setup an "External Link" to the widget on my site  Parkviewx.com  but it is a crude display without any  frames or menus.
If anyone can provide a solution I would be so grateful..  I'm sure it would be very popular as the graphics are some of the highest resolution maps and radar I have ever seen.
Thanks for your consideration...

You mean like this?


I've been using Windy to show wind forecast on my Saratoga Template site for quite some time.  I just use the embed code provided by Windy, added it to a new page, and then added that page to the menu system.

Should work the same way for the map you want to display on your site.


Cheers!

Can't wait to get home from vacation and give this a try.

Thanks
