[wp-hackers] Adding Google map inside post edit/writing

Thanks for the replies..unfortunately neither Geo Mashup nor Routes does
what I need.

I am now pretty sure I have not explained myself correctly. After seeing the
plugins mentioned above, I can say that what I need is pretty basic.

My improved explanation: I need to insert a google map on my post write/edit
page; this map will have zooming and dragging capabilities, in addition to
showing the default map view, and one key feature to get the geo coordinates
of the point clicked on the map. I already have the JS to do this, but I
need to find a way for the map to just show up in the post write/edit page.

The map will have absolutely no use in the "live" website, but will only be
a tool for users to get the geo coordinates of a specific location while
they are writing the post.

I am also working on the add_meta_box() solution, but I still cannot figure
out how to make the JS work in the plugin..
