The Google map module allows you to present a map of anywhere in the world on your network, and add markers to mark specific places on the map. You can set marker categories and allow members of your network to contribute their own markers.

Find a location anywhere in the world by typing it into the location box and clicking Go. Click and drag or use the arrow buttons on the top left of the map to move the map into position and zoom in and out using the + and - buttons. Select the 'Set as default view' to set the map to this view.
Use the hand to pin-point where you want to place the marker, click your mouse so that you see a green arrow. Click on the 'Add new marker' link in the location box and fill in the marker content details, choose a marker colour then click the 'Add marker' button.
