Adding multiple markers and infoWindows to Google Map

First create your html page.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
 <title>Google Maps Example</title>
 <script src='http://code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js' type='text/javascript'></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="map.js"></script>
<div id="map_canvas" style="width: 600px; height: 600px;"></div>

Now add the following javaScript.


var infowindow = null;
$(document).ready(function () { initialize(); });

function initialize() {

var centerMap = new google.maps.LatLng(39.828175, -98.5795);

var myOptions = {
zoom: 4,
center: centerMap,
mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP

var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map_canvas"), myOptions);

setMarkers(map, sites);
infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow({
content: "loading..."

//var bikeLayer = new google.maps.BicyclingLayer();

var sites = [
['Mount Evans', 39.58108, -105.63535, 4, 'This is Mount Evans.'],
['Irving Homestead', 40.315939, -105.440630, 2, 'This is the Irving Homestead.'],
['Badlands National Park', 43.785890, -101.90175, 1, 'This is Badlands National Park'],
['Flatirons in the Spring', 39.99948, -105.28370, 3, 'These are the Flatirons in the spring.']

function setMarkers(map, markers) {

for (var i = 0; i < markers.length; i++) {
var sites = markers[i];
var siteLatLng = new google.maps.LatLng(sites[1], sites[2]);
var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
position: siteLatLng,
map: map,
title: sites[0],
zIndex: sites[3],
html: sites[4]

var contentString = "Some content";

google.maps.event.addListener(marker, "click", function () {
infowindow.open(map, this);

This is the output.
