var mapProp = {
center:new google.maps.LatLng(51.508742,-0.120850),
zoom:5,
mapTypeId:google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
};
var map=new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById(…
}

google.maps.event.addDomListener(windo… 'load', initialize);
</script>
</head>

<body>
<div id="googleMap" style="width:500px;height:380px;"></div>
<p id="demo">Click the button to get your position:</p>
<button onclick="getLocation()">Try It</button>

<script>
var x=document.getElementById("demo");
function getLocation()

navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition…
}
else{x.innerHTML="Geolocation is not supported by this browser.";}
}
function showPosition(position)
{
lat=position.coords.latitude;
lon=position.coords.longitude;

mapholder=document.getElementById(google…
mapholder.style.height='500px';
mapholder.style.width='500px';

var myOptions={

navigationControlOptions:{style:google.m…
};
var map=new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById(…
var marker=new google.maps.Marker({position:latlon,map:… are here!"});
}

function showError(error)
{
switch(error.code)
{
case error.PERMISSION_DENIED:
x.innerHTML="User denied the request for Geolocation."
break;
case error.POSITION_UNAVAILABLE:
x.innerHTML="Location information is unavailable."
break;
case error.TIMEOUT:
