[527]1Search from the URL
3<p>We've added a new feature to the site, which allows you to enter your
4 search term as part of the URL, and have that search automatically executed
5 for you. So, if you wanted to link to our maps for a variety of different
6 places, you can now do so with a predictable URL.</p>
8<p>To use this, the base URL is
9 <a href=""></a> .
10 Then, put your search term after the ?, such as:</p>
12<ul><li><a href=""></a></li>
13<li><a href=" 7EP"> 7EP</a></li>
14<li><a href=""></a></li>
15<li><a href=", -4.2567">, -4.2567</a></li>
18<p>As you can see, it's now possible to search by postcode, 6 figure grid
19 reference, latitude and longitude, and place name (thanks to
20 <a href="">Geonames</a>).</p>
