The google static maps API should be able to do what you want.

You call the API with various parameters and you get a map section returned.

Take a look at the [Static Maps API Developer Guide][1] for further details.

Bing maps is a lot easier to implement. Certainly Report Builder 3 makes it very simple. Is there a reason that you want to use Google specifically?

definitely better to use Bing maps - it is MS after all, so should have better support/functionality.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
