With GMap Builder and your Google Maps API Key #, you can churn out a map in record time with many Google Maps API options supported, including adding a marker and popup window. You can save the HTML file and upload it to your web server, or use the mapping part of the generated code in an existing web page. If you require a more complete map you can use the generated HTML as a boilerplate or template and then manually build in other more advanced features.
# Note: You do not need a Google Maps API Key to view maps and adjust options within GMap Builder, but you do need one to save the HTML map file. If you don't have a Google Maps API Key, please see the Support Questions section in the Help file for info on how to get one.
This app comes with a preloaded group of default settings, but you can then tweak the options to get your desired result. The Help file also includes a list of commercial and free map tile URL sources in case you want to add a custom map type.
