Re: [External Sender] Google Embedded Maps

In my experience, the Google Maps maps are more accessible than the
embedded Google maps. Ensure that users can click through to view the map
on Google Maps. You could also provide at least some nearby landmarks in
text, "near the intersection of Main and High", "two blocks south of the
Capitol building", that kind of thing.
