"Place Finder" - Geocoding Mapplet for Google Maps

Found another way to use the geo coding application created last week - Google Mapplet. Google Mapplets are small script and HTML units that can drive a shared Google map instance and can be embedded in your Google maps page. The API documentation is available here. Similar to regular map APIs, but with some restrictions.

Rest of it was pretty easy. You can see the source code here.

To install the Mapplet, go to the Mapplets Directory and click on the Add by URL link next to the Search Google Maps Content button at the top of the page. Enter the URL of this mapplet as and click on the Add button. It will now appear under the Mapplets tab when you return to Google Maps.
