Put Google Maps on Your Own Web Site

The Google Maps API lets you embed Google Maps in your own web pages with JavaScript. The API provides a number of utilities for manipulating maps (just like on the web page) and adding content to the map through a variety of services, allowing you to create robust maps applications on your website.

New! Google Mapplets - Build mini-applications to embed on the Google Maps site itself.


The Maps API is a free beta service, available for any web site that is free to consumers. Please see the terms of use for more information.

To use the Maps API on an intranet or in a non-publicly accessible application, please check out Google Maps for Enterprise.
