Google Maps represent set of cartographic data in combination with satellite imageries and/or aerophotogrammetric images. Nowadays, Google Maps Application Programming Interface (API) based on Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) technology as standard Web service, facilitate users with publication of interactive web maps, thus opening new possibilities in relation to the classical analogue maps. The objective of this work is to provide solution for easy creation of the interactive web map, with base map supplied by Google, where all map elements and additional functionalities should be handled by just one line of code. The solution for the automatic creation of complete web map based on the Google Maps API (the HTML file with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) styling and Java Script functionality) is the package plotGoogleMaps developed in R programming language.

The feasibility of usage developed package was demonstrated for mapping geotechnical survey data. The case study area covers great part of New Belgrade municipality – banks of Sava and Danuberivers. Over sixty project reports treating detailed geotechnical research for main civil design projects of numerous constructions in period from year 1970 to year 2007 were collected end mapped via package plotGoogleMaps.
