  1. Get google map key.You can get from the below link of Google Map.Here I am using version2,in version3 of google map,we don’t need key.
  2. Replace GOOGLE_MAP_KEY with your google map key.
  3. Copy and paste the script in your code.
  4. Set the center of the map (Default center) by replacing the respective Latitude and Longitude.

[code lang=”js”]map.setCenter(new GLatLng(27.137368,75.761718), 5);[/code]

 

Here number 5 is zoom level,you can set this one also.

 

  1. Run the code.
  2. Click on any point on the map,a popup will automatically show up with the respective Latitude and Longitude(co-ordinates) of that point.
  3. If you want to discard it,don’t worry,just right click on the google map marker.
