Easiest way to create a google map mashup?

I wanted to add a mash up to my website and was wondering if there were
any recommendations? I saw that there is a cartographer plugin
(http://cartographer.rubyforge.org/) and also something else called YM4R
(http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/YM4R).

I have no idea if they are up to date or not or whether this is
currently the easiest/best way to go about it short of rolling your own.

Thanks…

Cartographer is more recently updated, AFAIK. No experience with YM4R.

Also check out the Robot Co-op’s Gem libraries for geodcoding

I haven’t been using rails very long, but I got something working very
quickly with YM4R. A basic geocode lookup and display of a map requires
only 4-5 lines of code in the controller, and a couple in the view.

I just got done with a project using ym4r. Works well and seems to be
actively used.
