Get Gmaps up and running

Just started messing around with the Google Maps module in Drupal. Here are some resources to get started with :

http://www.drupaltherapy.com/gmap

Late Update:

I've gotten things working pretty well now. I can create maps that specifically plot one type of web content (e.g. study sites) and display information about the content in the Google maps popup marker.

It took longer than expected because of a bug in the GMap code. This post by me outlines the problem and this post has the solution.

I also found this tutorial helpful in creating my first map.

Another Late update:

After updating modules, I am currently using this configuration without the above patch (not necessary):
Views 6.x-2.8
GMAP 6.x-1.x-dev (2009-Dec-15)
