About the Facilities Maps

It's not obvious how to get the Facilities URL's, but there is a logic to it. The URL always starts with the same beginning, followed by ?query=SOMETHING. The SOMETHING is the same as doing a search in the search box on the page. So ?query=JCBLIBRARY is the same as typing JCBLIBRARY in the search box on the maps page.

Getting unique results on the Maps page

A "good" URL will deliver one result from the search; a poor URL will deliver multiple results. See the difference in the URL's below      delivers several results (poor)      delivers one result (good)

Test around with different searches to see if you can get a unique result, then use it in your location URL.
