We often hear people ask, "How do I add a Google Map to my website?" Sometimes, it's from a small business owner simply trying to show directions to their store. Other times, it's from larger enterprises that want to create more complex mapping applications, overlaying their own proprietary layers of data on the map.
To help organizations of all sizes sort through their options, we've created a new web resource: maps.google.com/getmaps
Quick and Simple (for beginners and basic sites) You'll find step-by-step instructions for plotting one or more locations on a map and embedding that map into your own website.
Advanced (for developers & advanced sites ) You'll see examples of the various ways to manipulate a map and add your own content as well as a handy comparison chart of the two Google Maps APIs (Standard and Premier) that you'll implement on your site.
Curious what other businesses are doing with interactive maps? Check out a few success stories listed on our new site or visit our Google Enterprise Maps website to see a more comprehensive list of success stories that you can sort by industry and read up on companies lie yours.
