NOTE: This is an official Second Life API provided and documented by Linden Lab. Its use is subject to the API Terms of Use.

Extend the reach of your Web site into Second Life using the Second Life Map API, which enables you to embed interactive Second Life maps directly into your web pages. These maps look and act much like Google Maps, except that, instead of the Earth, they display the topography of the Second Life virtual world. See for an example.

When you use the Map API to embed Second Life maps on your site, your visitors can:

  • Click and drag the mouse pointer to pan the map view up, down, left, and right.
  • Double-click to zoom in by one level (power of two) and display the teleport window.
  • Click anywhere on the map to open a "teleport" window.
  • Use the mouse wheel or pan controls to zoom in and out.
