Google bring its "AdSense for Maps" to Maps API v3. "The Maps Ad Unit overlays a set of AdSense ads on the map, in any of the supported formats. You can control where on the map the ads are placed, and the ads shown are based on the current map location. It's a simple way to monetize your maps with unintrusive and relevant advertising.
You may also notice that we've given the map type control and Google logo a refresh in this release. The new map type control is more compact and extensible, easier to use on touch screen devices, and consistent in look and feel with our other controls," stated Google.
To use the Maps Ad Unit you must have an AdSense account enabled for AdSense for Content. Then take a look at the documentation to see how to add the Maps Ad Unit to your Maps API application.
