I am a beginner user here, but I've been tasked with developing maps of our volunteers. There are two types of volunteers (contacts), CDL Drivers and Plain Volunteers. I have researched a few pages and it is suggested that APEX code be used. But, I have no idea what I'm doing here. Any suggestions where to start?

Thank you

    The upcoming spring release also contains a visualforce component for google maps! If no one beats me to it i'll try to write up an answer after work. (I've taken the liberty to modify your title slightly so that your question becomes easier to find for others). Commented Jan 23, 2015 at 8:20
