Want to add a Google Map to your web page? Looking for a simple way to embed Google Maps on your pages? Try gMap, a lightweight jQuery plugin that will enable you to easily embed Google Maps into your website. This jQuery plugin is very flexible and highly customizable. To embed a Google Map, all you need to do is add a simple line of code to your HTML. And it is only 2 KB in size! Interesting, isn’t it?
To start using the gMap jQuery plugin, you need a free Google Maps API key and at least version 1.3 of the jQuery library. Then insert calls to your Google Maps API, jQuery library and the gMap plugin in your <head> section. Then place a <div> on your page and call the gMap() function on it. That’s it! Your map will be live. For customization, you need to pass a JSON object to the gMap() function.
