Google Map on Custom detail page

I want to user the google map on my detail page layout. how can we use this like my section is Location having street address and City How can we use this on the custom object.

- Use Visual Force to add a live, interactive Google Map with zoom controls and maptype select buttons to Salesforce Accounts and Leads and other detail record pages:

Go to Your Name » Setup » Develop » Pages

Copy/paste the following code into a new Page replacing what appears by default.  Notice that in this example we're using custom fields for the Account address components:
<apex:page standardController="Account">
<apex:pageBlock >
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js"></script> 
<script type="text/javascript"> 
$(document).ready(function() {
  var myOptions = {
    zoom: 20,
    mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.HYBRID,
    mapTypeControl: true
  var map;
  var marker;
  var geocoder = new google.maps.Geocoder();
  var address = "{!Account.Project_Street_Address__c}, " + "{!Account.Project_City__c}, " + "{!Account.Project_Zipcode__c}";
  var infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow({
    content: "<b>{!Account.Name}</b>"
  geocoder.geocode( { address: address}, function(results, status) {
    if (status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK && results.length) {
      if (status != google.maps.GeocoderStatus.ZERO_RESULTS) {
        //create map
        map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), myOptions);
        //center map
        //create marker
        marker = new google.maps.Marker({
            position: results[0].geometry.location,
            map: map,
            title: "{!Account.Name}"
        //add listeners
        google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'click', function() {
        google.maps.event.addListener(infowindow, 'closeclick', function() {
    } else {
      $('#map').css({'height' : '15px'});
      $('#map').html("Oops! {!Account.Name}'s address could not be found, please make sure the address is correct.");
  function resizeIframe() {
    var me = window.name;
    if (me) {
      var iframes = parent.document.getElementsByName(me);
      if (iframes && iframes.length == 1) {
        height = document.body.offsetHeight;
        iframes[0].style.height = height + "px";
#map {
  font-family: Arial;
  line-height:normal !important;
<div id="map"></div> 

Hi Anurag Pareek3 

+1 to SolidLucas

The above code works simply superb.
If its not working for you  change these two lines
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js"></script>

To :

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false"></script>
 <script type="text/javascript" src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js"></script>

It will work like a charm.
