Google maps -> sending coördinates

I need to send geo coördinates from a mysql database to a google maps
javascript.

There´s no problem to get them into rails…But how can i send them to
javascript ?

I know javascript is client side so i think it´s impossible to include
ruby variables…

Suggestions ?

Thanks

What I always do is this: have Rails put the data in a hidden HTML
element with a known ID. Then the JavaScript can read the contents of
that element.

Thanks
