Read the documentation.

TypeScript

function initMap(): void {
  const myLatLng = { lat: -25.363, lng: 131.044 };

  const map = new google.maps.Map(
    document.getElementById("map") as HTMLElement,
    {
      zoom: 4,
      center: myLatLng,
    }
  );

  new google.maps.Marker({
    position: myLatLng,
    map,
    title: "Hello World!",
  });
}

JavaScript

function initMap() {
  const myLatLng = { lat: -25.363, lng: 131.044 };
  const map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), {
    zoom: 4,
    center: myLatLng,
  });
  new google.maps.Marker({
    position: myLatLng,
    map,
    title: "Hello World!",
  });
}

CSS

/* Always set the map height explicitly to define the size of the div
       * element that contains the map. */
#map {
  height: 100%;
}

/* Optional: Makes the sample page fill the window. */
html,
body {
  height: 100%;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
}
