http://gis.yohman.com/gmaps-plugin/

How do I add a map to my post

Using shortcodes in the edit box for your post. The address parameter for the address, and the “z” parameter for zoom level (ex: 0=world, 20=really zoomed in)

Ex: [map address=”New York, USA” z=”15″]

Can I add multiple maps to the same post?

Yes! But make sure you use the “id” parameter to create unique id’s for each map.

Ex:
[map id=”map1″ address=”New York, USA”]
[map id=”map2″ address=”Los Angeles, USA”]

Can I change the size of the map?

Yes! Just add your own width and height parameters (the default is 400×300).

Ex:
[map w=”200″ h=”100″]

Can you add info bubbles?

Yes! Add the “infowindow” parameter

Ex:
[map address=”New York” marker=”yes” infowindow=”Hello New York!”]

Can you add KML’s?

Yes! Just provide the url link to the KML file. The map will auto center and zoom to the extent of your KML.

Ex:
[map kml=”http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ggeoxml/cta.kml”]

Can you add Fusion Table Layers?

Yes! Just provide the Fusion Layer ID as “fusion” parameter.

Ex:
[map address=”90095″ z=9 fusion=”825831″]
