(1) for producing html code for a Google Map with R-package googleVis do something like:


df <- data.frame(Address = c("Innsbruck", "Wattens"),
Tip = c("My Location 1", "My Location 2"))
mymap <- gvisMap(df, "Address", "Tip", options = list(showTip = TRUE, mapType = "normal",
enableScrollWheel = TRUE))
plot(mymap) # preview

(2) then just copy-paste the html to your blog or website after customizing for your purpose..
