Styled Google Maps Example

Styled Maps - Google Maps JavaScript API v3

Styled maps allow you to customize the presentation of the standard Google base maps, changing the visual display of such elements as roads, parks, and built-up areas. There are two ways to apply styles to a map:

  1. By setting the .styles property of the map's MapOptions object. 
  2. By creating and defining a StyledMapType and applying it to the map.
