help with postback and disappearing div that contains a map.

I have a page that used the google maps API.  The map "canvas" is a div tag.  The map is created on the client side using the javascript API.   I have a button that causes a postback, after which my map "disappears".   So, I imagine this is related to the postback, and the fact that my map creation code is not called on postback.   Is that the case?   If yes, how do I fix this?  If not, what else might be going on?  See imamy map pageafter postbackges.

You can put the section below the map into an update panel so that the whole page does not postback.

ah ok.  there already is an update panel on the page. If I move the div that is the map canvas outside the update panel, that appears to solve the issue.  Does that make sense?

ah, a second solution -  I added a second update panel around the button in question.  Does that make sense, too?  Now, with two update panels on the page, one within another, what dictates what part of the page get the postback, and when?
Each update panel has a triggers element where you can define what controls can trigger postback of that update panel
