Article in APC Magazine states that Google had released embeddable maps and maplets

“Mapplets can also be combined together. For example, a website that provides vineyard listings has the results plotted onto Google Maps, and this can then be combined with another Mapplet from a website called Panoramio, which shows photos from different places. Result? You can see photos from vineyards in a region to plan a scenic weekend away.”

Third party developers create localised map content/directories/tools such as fuel prices which can be added to your own custom maps.
