How To Easily Get the Code Right When Embedding Google Maps


Google MapsImplementing Google Maps in a web site can be at bit of a hassle if you are like me. Not the sharpest knife in the JavaScript drawer. If you find it difficult to get the right parameters for your code, luckily help is always near with the tool Google Maps Generator.

The tool has a GUI in which you can easily set the parameters, you need, for instance layout, user controls, start position, and zoom level. The it serves you a code snippet, which you can easily copy and paste into your HTML.

I think this tool could come in handy combined with the repository of color themes on Snazzy Maps, which I described recently, so that you are sure to get exactly the right parameters included in your maps.
