How To Embed Google Maps with Latitude and Longitude

In the previous post, we have seen how to find the latitude and longitude of any location in Google Maps. As a follow-up post, I’m now going show you a simple step to embed basic Google maps of any location by only changing the Latitude & Longitude. To do so you need Latitude & Longitude of the location you want to embed.

Google provide a simple HTML code to embed Google Maps in your website. Refer post.

Code Snippet:

#map_canvas {
width: 500px;
height: 400px;
<script src=”https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false”></script>
function initialize() {
var map_canvas = document.getElementById(‘map_canvas’);
var map_options = {
center: new google.maps.LatLng(44.5403, -78.5463),
mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
var map = new google.maps.Map(map_canvas, map_options)
google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, ‘load’, initialize);
<div id=”map_canvas”></div>

Here change the values of Latitude and Longitude of your location.

center: new google.maps.LatLng(44.5403, -78.5463),

You can also change the zoom level by modifying the values of


Increase the value ‘8’ to Zoom in and decrease to Zoom Out.

Specify the width & height of the map you are going embed.

width: 500px;
height: 400px;

Highlighted fields need to be changed. Hope this tutorial will be helpful to you.
