Google maps locator

The Google maps Locator

Shows one icon (marker) on a Google Map, based on a latitude and longitude value. This widget does not provide travel information and does not support multiple markers, it simply displays one location on a map. For travel information you can use the 'Google Maps - Directions' widget. To display multiple markers you can use the 'Google Maps - Markermap' widget. Demonstrations of both widgets are coming soon.

This widget requires a API key to function, you can find API keys more about API keys on: this page.
