Creates a web page which uses Google Maps to display on a map the location of events (and attributes) in a person’s life – if you click 'Quick View Current Record' when you run it. Alternatively, if you click 'Select Records and Create Pages for All' it will create multiple web page files (.html files) for a set of people that you choose. In the latter case, you will need to select both the location to save the web page files to, and the individuals to map.
If Google does not recognise any particular places, you can solve this by using the “Map Geo-code Maintenance” plugin to specify an alternate name for each place (one that Google will recognise), or a specific longitude and latitude.

An excellent Plugin that shows where your ancestors lived and worked and where they emigrated to or imigrated from.

Works very but ... make sure that you use full addresses for your locations to avoid Birkenhead moving to South Africa!

I tried this plug in and it works for most, but I cannot get this plug in to work for Gayle, Yorkshire, UK so installed the map geo-code maintenance plug in!!! I have used the coordinates that google maps recognise externally - but inputting and saving the lat and long in the plug in still gives me a map of Houston in the US !!

It doesn't Work very well for me. I'm living in Denmark and have a Danish Windows 8.
The special Danish characters appears as Squares in the text generated by the plugin.
It seems like the plugin doesn't care about ANSI code pages ???
I have tried to export as Unicode GEDCOM and open that file after changing the settings to not use ANSI.
