Embedding a map using Geofield & Google Map V3 API with Javascript

This is a brief synopsis of how to embed a Google map on a Drupal site using Javascript and Geofield Latitude & Longitude co-ordinates.

I'm not going to describe how to convert your location into geofield co-ordinates, merely how to render them out on a Google map.

Lets say you've used the Address Field module in conjunction with the Geofield module to create your locations geo-coordinates. These will be in a format of latitude & longitude which will look like: 54.592418, -0.1520028
