Google Maps API Tutorial

Google Maps API Tutorial

This tutorial is intended to help you create your own interactive maps using the Google API.

Do take a look at the Google documentation.

There are two ways to use this tutorial:

  1. Read it and try to understand the principles involved.
  2. Use the example files as templates. Paste the code into your own web page and change the API key and data. Read the “potential pitfalls” sections, and try to avoid them.

Using the Google Map API is not easy if you don’t have much Javascript experience.
If you find the Google documentation too difficult to understand, it’s not because it’s badly written it’s just that the subject is not easy.
