In this simple project, you'll interact with one of the most ubiquitous APIs out there: Google Maps. It has TONS of really cool functionality (you can basically make a map that does anything you want) but here we'll just get some more experience with placing an API object on a page. You'll get some practice with reading API documentation, because we won't tell you how to do what you need to do here.
Create a simple site that has just a Google map on it and a form where the user can enter a latitude and longitude and a message. When the form is submitted, a marker is placed on the map in that location. Clicking the marker should bring up the message that was entered (you don't need to create this functionality yourself -- if you set up the marker properly then Maps will do it for you).
Play around with the other options the Maps API gives you -- you can customize almost everything on a map, from the way the thumbtacks drop down to the colors of each element.
