Google has just added an excellent new embed feature to Google Maps allowing you to copy and paste interactive maps into your website or blog posts. You can even customize the size and preview the map before you add the embed code.
Starting today, Google Maps users can add a map to their website or blog just by copying & pasting a snippet of HTML. This new functionality enables Google Maps users to share and disseminate geographic information in the same way that YouTube users share videos. Bloggers and webmasters no longer need an API key or knowledge of Java Script to put a Google Map on their website or blog.
For more on this feature and how to embed maps on your website or blog, see the announcement on Google’s Lat Long blog.
