Read the documentation.

TypeScript

// Initialize the map.
function initMap(): void {
  const map = new google.maps.Map(
    document.getElementById("map") as HTMLElement,
    {
      zoom: 8,
      center: { lat: 40.72, lng: -73.96 }
    }
  );
  const geocoder = new google.maps.Geocoder();
  const infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow();

  (document.getElementById("submit") as HTMLElement).addEventListener(
    "click",
    () => {
      geocodePlaceId(geocoder, map, infowindow);
    }
  );
}

// This function is called when the user clicks the UI button requesting
// a geocode of a place ID.
function geocodePlaceId(
  geocoder: google.maps.Geocoder,
  map: google.maps.Map,
  infowindow: google.maps.InfoWindow
) {
  const placeId = (document.getElementById("place-id") as HTMLInputElement)
    .value;
  geocoder.geocode({ placeId: placeId }, (results, status) => {
    if (status === "OK") {
      if (results[0]) {
        map.setZoom(11);
        map.setCenter(results[0].geometry.location);
        const marker = new google.maps.Marker({
          map,
          position: results[0].geometry.location
        });
        infowindow.setContent(results[0].formatted_address);
