Implementing Google Maps using API on your website


Hello Friends,
Are you looking to implement Google Map in your website ?? Do you have a Real estate property website ? If yes, the you must implement(integrate) Google map using API key into your website. Recently i have implemented the Google map into one of my client’s website and it is very easy to implement.  Here i am showing you the step by step way to integrate the Google map into your website.
Below are the steps.
<?php
require(‘GoogleMapAPI.class.php’);
$map = new GoogleMapAPI(‘map’);
$map->setAPIKey(‘APIKEYHERE’);
$map->addMarkerByAddress(‘London SW66HX’,’Our Address’,’<b>London <br />SW66HX</b>’);
?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd”>
<html xmlns:v=”urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml”>
<head>
<?php $map->printHeaderJS(); ?>
<?php $map->printMapJS(); ?>
<!– necessary for google maps polyline drawing in IE –>
<style type=”text/css”>
v:* {
behavior:url(#default#VML);
}
</style>
</head>
<body onLoad=”onLoad();”>
<?php $map->printMap(); ?>
</body>
</html>
1) If you don’t have Google map API than
Create the one from here. (Its a free)
2) Download GoogleMapAPI.class.php Class.
3) Include GoogleMapAPI.class.php file in your web page.
<?php
require(‘GoogleMapAPI.class.php’);
?>
4) Add these three statement. Change your Google Map API key in second statement and provide address for which you want to show Google Map in third statement.
<?php
$gmap = new GoogleMapAPI(‘map’);
$gmap->setAPIKey(‘APIKEYHERE’);
$gmap->addMarkerByAddress(‘Ahmedabad India’,'Address’,'<b>Ahmedabad <br />Gujarat <br /> India</b>’);
?>
5) Write below code in <head></head> tags.
<head>
<?php $gmap->printHeaderJS(); ?>
<?php $gmap->printMapJS(); ?>
<!– necessary for google maps polyline drawing in IE –>
<style type=”text/css”>
v\:* {
behavior:url(#default#VML);
}
</style>
</head>
6) Call onLoad() function in body tag.
<body onLoad=”onLoad();”>
7) Write below statement to show the Google map as per provided address.
<?php $gmap->printMap(); ?>
Thats it.
