How can I embed an existing user map into a joomla site?

Can anyone help me embed the following map, as is, into a joomla site (currently 1.5 but need something that will be compatible with upgrades).

Ok, this is a more simple solution for your requestion and might not work for your purposes, but you might want to give it a shot as it's a quick and dirty solution for you.

1) Go to your Google make through the URL you provided above.

In the upper right hand corner you will see a link button...click on it:

 Link button
Copy the iFrame URL...should look like this:
 
<iframe width="425" height="350" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=212355384866509792128.00046f9587b078a5160a0&source=embed&t=m&vpsrc=6&ll=-35.192138,138.54794&spn=0.208149,0.149603&output=embed"></iframe>

Open in new window


Now, you will need Jumi a custom content plugin/module/component in order for this to work.  You can download that from here:
http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/edition/custom-code-in-content/1023

After Jumi installs it will create a Jumi module.

Open up that module and paste the <iframe> html into the code section:
 Jumi
Apply a module position and Save the page.

Here's what it would look like when completed.

download the google  maps plugin, enable it and then in an article put the following

{mosmap width='580'|height='400'|lat='38.05413'|lon='23.83912'|zoom='16'|zoomType='Large'|zoomNew='0'|showMaptype='1'|overview='0'|text='your text'|tooltip='......'|marker='1'|align='center'} </p>

You might consider using a Google static map.  It lets you embed an image, which should be fairly future-proof.  I have an example in this article.
