Simple Map using Google Maps API v3

       Let us begin with our first example using Google Maps API v3. Even before a marker - the most basic element of a map, appears, the map should be seen on the screen. Let us have a look at the following javascript code first. We will then have a look at the elements in the code.

            Ta-da a map in action! This map is centred at the Sansad Bhavan, New Delhi, India.
In the above code the head of the document contains a critical script element. Its src attribute points to the location of the API on Google's server. In API v3 there is no need to obtain a key for the API. The remaining is simple Javascript.

          Happy mapping!!!
