On most of the company websites, you will find locations or contacts page that displays that company location in that country or state in a google map along with the company address.

This is a pretty common requirement even for food or hotel business-related websites.

So in this article, we will see how to add a google map with the preferred location on your website.

Initial Setup

Create a new folder with the name google-map-location-demo and create an index.html file inside it. Now, type ! (exclamation mark) in the file and press tab, so the default HTML code will automatically be added by emmet.

If you're not aware of emmet and its useful shortcuts, check out my this article.
