Shrink Google Static Map On Smartphones

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I want to insert a Google static map. I noticed that there may be some loss of information (e.g., loss of the name of narrow streets) when using lower value for the size attribute of the map. For example, http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/staticmap?&size=600x600 may show more details than http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/staticmap?&size=150x150.

On the other hand I want the static map to display on smartphones, adjusted to their width. With some JS I could get the width of the smartphone and inject it in the size attribute, but that could lead to some loss of details.

So here is my question : is it possible to load the map, say, at 600x600, then shrink it to the width of the smartphone (in the same way as shrinking a jpg image where details are not lost, but just rescaled) ?

Thanks !
