I need to create a google search map like the one they have on the SERVICES link here on creative cow.

Can anyone please give me a quick tutorial!

I know html, css php and mysql intermediate level. I get stumped on the javascript.

Thanks!

Excellent resources and material on the Google Map API can be found here:
http://www.google.com/search?q=google+map+api

A hello world tutorial for the API can be seen here:

http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/introduction.html

Google does a great job documenting this API.

Thanks, but I already went through the site but didn't find anything that helped me put together the features I need.

I just need someone to say do this and this and this ....

thanks anyways!

Anyone else that can help that would be great!

Well, Hoss, I don't know what features you want to put in your site, but to go just for the map try this simple step:

Go to google maps (http://maps.google.com/) and find the location you want to put in your site, then in the upper right corner of the map there is a "Link" button. Click on it and it will display two options of code. One is a direct link, the other is an HTML code you can copy/paste to your site to display the actual map.

Just be aware this option is available just to be used in personal web sites. If you have a commercial site you'll need to use the Google Maps API. It's free. The documentation for the API is the one Abraham has recommended before.
