Lat/Lng Object Literal

This example demonstrates using a LatLng object literal instead of a google.maps.LatLng object, to center the map and add a marker. LatLng object literals are a convenient way to add a LatLng coordinate and, in most cases, can be used in place of a google.maps.LatLng object.
