Google Map (v3) - Print View)

Basic Google Map (v3)

This is an example of the most basic, simple map that can be made with Google Maps V3. Almost all of the values are left to default with exception of the size of the map which was made 750 x 500, the center of the maps which is set to 39.828180,-98.57955 (the geographic center of the contiguous 48 states), the map type is set to road map and the zoom which is set to four. In addition, code has been placed within the document to display a message if the browser is not capable of displaying a map. Comments are placed within the code to explain which controls are required in each map that you construct with Google Maps.
<!-- add a META element with the charset attribute set to "utf-8", as follows Your page must use UTF-8 encoding to create some elements of the map -->
