Google Chart Maps

The Google Map Chart displays a map using the Google Maps API.

Data values are displayed as markers on the map.

Data values can be coordinates (latitude-longitude pairs) or addresses.

The map will be scaled so that it includes all the identified points.

If you want your maps to be line drawings rather than satellite imagery, use a geochart instead.
