Simple example. Adding two markers to a map

You can use an address or latitude and longitude to position a marker on a map using the data attribute.

<div id="simplegmaps-1">
	<div class="map-marker" data-title="Lorem ipsum" data-latlng="55.5897407,13.012268899999981"></div>
	<div class="map-marker" data-title="Remi" data-address="Remi 145 W 53rd St, New York, NY, United States"></div>
</div>
simplegmaps.init({
  container: '#simplegmaps-1'
});
