Google Web Elements

Google Map Element

Google have just released a new service called Web Elements which allow users to cut-and-paste Google applications into their websites or blogs. The elements include real-time news, calendars, presentations, spreadsheets, YouTube videos and a simple Google Map.

To use the Google Map element you just need to define a location, choose a size and map type and add a marker title. The map element is very simple to use and is a great way to create a very simple interactive map.

If you want to create a slightly more complicated map Google also have a Get Maps web page. This page shows you how to grab the embed code from the main Google Maps site, how to create a My Map and how to add driving directions to your business website.
