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. [1]: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/staticmaps/

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.
