I have a database of addresses.  In my application (php/mysql) a user pulls up one address at a time.

When that address is pulled up, I want to display a google map with a marker of where that address is.

There are no lat / long in my database.  

How can I accomplish this?

First go through the nizsmo's API URL

then, practice the samples there and workout few samples,

so, you can dynamically add lat / long by marking the location and store it in the database.  also for the lat/long you can store the address and it could be retrieved the marked locations...etc.,

look at this sample, http://maps.forum.nu/gm_markers_from_db.php
