Countywide Services Locator version 3 released

sl version3It’s finally here! the Countywide Services Locator now is embeddable.

Here is the home site (updated to Google API version 3): http://maps.lacounty.gov

Here is the embeddable version: http://maps.lacounty.gov/SL_Body.aspx

 

There are three different parameters that you can pass to either of these two sites.

  1. address_string – this is where you pass the address that you want to show.
  2. Cat1 – where you select the primary category (the tab) that you want to show
  3. Cat2 – you can open the specified category2 (the relevant cat1 tab will also open

As an example, I want to find all of the Safe Havens near zip code 91208.

I can embed this with the following parameters: http://maps.lacounty.gov/SL_Body.aspx?address_string=91208&cat2=Safe+Havens

Here is an example

Or you can pass the same parameters to the main site using a box on your end (like the lacounty.gov box): http://maps.lacounty.gov/?address_string=91208&cat2=Safe+Havens

Here are more detailed instructions, and an example of embedding

Can I download the data?

Yes – the data is managed by the Countywide Location Management System which contains a broad array of information – beyond even what is shown in the Services Locator.  To download, go to the LA County Data Portal.
