Zh GoogleMap
Not too bad a module, the main issue I have (and this is with the component in general) is that markers can only be assigned to a single map, that means that if you want to have a map shown in a full page and also in a a smaller module somewhere else you need to duplicate all your markers and assign them to the new map, which is a bit of a pain.

On the whole though this component rocks and this module just extends its functionality a bit futher. Thanks

It is not true.
You can show one map as a component, as a module and as a plugin.
May be you don't understand right.
You create a map, for example with id=2.

Then you create menu and assign component call for this map. And you'll get map :)

After that you want to show this map as a module. Welcome. Create page, publish module and set MapID property to 2. After that you've got the same map as a module.

After that, if you publish this map in an article, you create article and call {zhgooglemap:2}
And get this map in article.

As for assignments placemark to map. Yes, placemark connected to a map, but you can show your's placemarks in the other maps by different ways:
- plugin call by placemark group - in this case you can show yours placemarks, belonging a definite group in your map, and in this case placemarks can be initially connected to different maps
- plugin call by category - in this case you show yours placemarks, belonging a definite category, and in this case placemarks can be initially connected to different maps

Or another case - you create one map with all yours placemarks. And want to show in 1-st article placemark#1, in the 2-nd article - placemark#3
In this case you simple call plugin call with placemark id
Article#1: {zhgooglemap-marker:1}
Article#2: {zhgooglemap-marker:3}
Thats all.

As for size:
- when you show map as a plugin call - you can override map size
- you can set width=0, in this case width=100%, and you can set height=0, in this case height=100%.
And you can control your map size as you want. For example, apply my simple template for full screen to get full screen map, or develop your's as you want.
