Easily Embed Google Maps

Google has recently announced the ability to embed a Google Map into a website without having to use their API. Though not as powerful, the embed feature is much easier to use. It works much like embedding a YouTube video — just copy the source code and paste. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Load up a map.
  2. Click “Link to this page” in the top, right-hand corner.
  3. Copy the HTML provided.
  4. Paste into your favorite web editor.

You can bet you’ll start to see more custom Google maps showing up on Gadling in the near future as we work out the kinks and figure out the best way to use this nifty new feature. Check out an example after the jump. [via]
