Quick and easy management of google maps to display on your blog.  Supports static maps api

== Description ==

The plugin aims to provide a quick and easy way to store googlemaps on your blog. By storing maps, requests to google map api are kept minimum
and the possibility of not having a map show up on your page if google service is interrupted is reduced.  Shortcodes are provided in the editor to make including a map you have created
even easier.

Planned extensions will include editable notes for map flags and ajax to make creating a map more intuitive and support for the javascript and google
earth apis.

== Installation ==

1. Upload `googlemapsForWP` folder and `googlemapsForWP.php` to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
3. Add maps via the admin panel provided under the Wordpress Tools menu
4. Each map you add will provide a shortcode to add into your posts
