There are currently numerous ways for integrating Google Maps with Drupal. The most popular method is to use the GMap Module together with the Location module. This method provides the most functionality and highest level of customization. However for relatively simple integrations, it is possible to simply embed the javaScript as part of a custom module or part of a custom page. This will allow for a simple JavaScript integration which makes use of the Google Geo Coder API. Basically, the idea is to supply the Address string to the google geo coder which returns the longtitude and latitude of the site. This will enable Google map to pin point that address. The following is some sample code that we have altered from a contribution at Drupal.org: Google Maps JavaScript API Example
