They used google my maps.  You would need to sign into your google maps account to modify it.

Here is an easy work flow to take this on your own.

1) https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/embed?ll=37.160317%2C-95.712891&spn=33.406245%2C56.25&output=embed&hl=en&msa=0&z=4&ie=UTF8&mid=1T7dWbCZW2QceU9LIuvyY3N-Ro3Y

2) Right nav, on the bottom see the text, "Made with My Maps" which is really a link.  Click on that (while logged into google).

3) That will take you to https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/ with that map probably in the top right corner.

4) On the square for that map, click on the 3 vertical dots and and select Copy.

5) Now there is a map you can add/edit locations that you control
map.PNGTowards the top, click the share link and make sure it is shared with everyone on the web and not private.

6) Last step, on the top next to the title of the map there are another 3 vertical dots. Click on that and select Embed on my site.   Copy the code for the iframe and you are good.

There is a more advanced way of doing this using the api, this is a lot easier and I didn't know it existed and have been doing it the hard way :)
