Hi Rakesh,

You could for example built a custom module to store the locations (Title, Description, GeoLocation)

Then you could create a custom widget that initializes a Google Map and the markers. You can do this all from javascript and the only thing you should take care of is to add a array of markers, based on your GeoLocations.

Here is a sample code on how to build an array from code:
private void BuildMarkersArray(IQueryable<ProjectItem> projects)
 
           var sb = new StringBuilder();
           sb.Append("var markersArray = [];");
           sb.Append("markersArray = [");
 
           foreach (var item in projects)
               if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(item.ProjectLocation))
 
                   // Construct the infowindow content
                   string content = BuildInfoWindowContent(item);
                   sb.Append("['" + item.ProjectLocation + "', '" + content + "'],");
               
           
 
           sb.Remove(sb.Length - 1, 1);
           sb.Append("]");
 
           // Get a ClientScriptManager reference from the Page class.
           ClientScriptManager cs = Page.ClientScript;
           Type cstype = this.GetType();
 
           string scriptImages = "ScriptImages";
           var sbImages = new StringBuilder();
           sbImages.Append("var imageIcon = '" + Page.ResolveUrl("~/Assets/Images/gmarker.png") + "';");
           sbImages.Append("var imageShadow = '" + Page.ResolveUrl("~/Assets/Images/gmarker-shw.png") + "';");
 
           if (!cs.IsStartupScriptRegistered(cstype, scriptImages))
               cs.RegisterStartupScript(cstype, scriptImages, sbImages.ToString(), true);
 
           // Define the name and type of the client scripts on the page.
           string scriptName = "LocationList";
 
           // Check to see if the startup script is already registered.
           if (!cs.IsStartupScriptRegistered(cstype, scriptName))
               cs.RegisterStartupScript(cstype, scriptName, sb.ToString(), true);
 
       

You can find the documentation of the Google Maps API (javascript) here:
code.google.com/.../tutorial.html

If you need any more help, let me know.

Regards,
Daniel
