In addition to working hard to add more and more powerful features to the Maps API for our developer community, we also strive to make it even easier for non-programmers to embed maps into their webpages. To that end, the Google Maps team announced a new feature yesterday, called Embeddable Maps, that allows anybody, regardless of programming experience, to include a Google Map in their webpage. Although I personally may want to claim that using the Maps API is simple, putting an embedded map in your page literally takes nothing more than a copy and paste. Check out the map I embedded below - it shows off a nerdy KML created by Bo Majewski, one of our very own Google Maps API engineers.
