GMaps.js — Static map

You can easily make a static map using GMaps.js:

url = GMaps.staticMapURL({
  size: [610, 350],
  lat: -12.043333,
  lng: -77.028333

$('<img/>').attr('src', url)

You must define a size and the latitude and longitude of the map's center.

Note: You also can define zoom (by default is 15, unless zoom is set to false, in which case Google will set zoom based on marker positions).
