We use the google maps api for all our GIS work.
It integrates really well with php.
We use it to plot pharmacies in Glasgow and the various services that
they provide along with the number of spaces that they have for
substitute prescibing for patients with drug misuse problems so it is
very dynamic.

As long as the website is publically available then the licencing
terms seem reasonable.
