Using the Waze iFrame

Developers can embed a Waze Live Map on their website. The Live Map lets visitors search for locations and view real-time traffic updates based on Waze's real-time map data.

You embed the Waze Live Map into your website by using an iFrame, so that the output looks like the following:

By default, the Live Map includes a link to this map's search and routing options in the lower-left corner.

For examples of additional Live Map configuration options, see Examples.

To embed an iFrame with Waze Live Map:

  1. Open your web page in a text editor.
  2. To generate an iFrame on your web page, add your iFrame code to your web page.
  3. Open the Waze Live Map, search for your location either in the search bar or by zooming in and clicking on a specific segment of the map.
  4. Click the share icon in the bottom right corner of the map.
  5. A pop-up should appear with a customized embed code. Copy and paste the code into the body of your web page.

Example

The following example shows how to embed the Live Map into your website. Update the URL parameters for your use case.

<iframe src="https://embed.waze.com/iframe?zoom=12&lat=45.6906304&lon=-120.810983"
  width="300" height="400"></iframe>

To embed the iFrame into a responsive website, we recommend that you use common CSS techniques to set the iFrame size automatically, based on the screen size.

URL parameters

The following table describes the parameters of the Waze iFrame:

Parameter Required? Description
desc Optional Set this parameter to any value to display a descriptive text block in the Live Map. Broadcasters use this text to provide up-to-date information for Wazers, with no need for manual updates to their stations' websites. All text is created by Waze ensuring the content is correct.
lat Required The latitude of the map's center point.
lon Required The longitude of the map's center point.
pin Optional

Set to 1 to place a pin to the center of the map. For example:

<iframe src="https://embed.waze.com/iframe?
  zoom=12&lat=45.6906304&lon=-120.810983&pin=1"
  width="300" height="400"></iframe>

zoom Required

The level of magnification of the map when it is opened.

The minimum value is 3 (least magnification). The maximum value is 17 (most magnification).

Localization

The default language code is English. For more information, see Localizing the iFrame.

The following example shows how to change the display language:

<iframe src="https://embed.waze.com/fr/iframe?zoom=12&lat=45.6906304&lon=-120.810983"
  width="300" height="400"></iframe>

Guidelines

To embed the Waze Live Map on your site, you must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Do not associate Waze with use of a non-Waze map in any way.

  • Do not use Waze-branded materials (logo, icons, etc) with non-Waze maps.
