Accessing the Google Map API for your own in-form location input widget which allowss users to “pin” their location on a Google map and allow you to store their map location, latitude and longitude in your database is easy with this library.  It’s just like the JQuery calendar widget — it’s as simple, clean and reliable!

Here’s a sample of how to use this code.

<fieldset class=”gllpLatlonPicker”>
<div class=”gllpMap”>Google Maps</div>
<input type=”hidden” class=”gllpLatitude”/>
<input type=”hidden” class=”gllpLongitude”/>
<input type=”hidden” class=”gllpZoom”/>
<input type=”text” class=”gllpLocationName” size=42/>
