I have created visual force pages it's working fine. I need to spilt the selected address such as city, street, country and so on. Please find the VF page attachment of images.

<apex:page id="page" standardController="account" >
 <script src="https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?language=en&sensor=false&libraries=places" type="text/javascript"></script>  
    <script type="text/javascript"> 

        function initializeField() {        
            var input = document.getElementById('page:form:field');           
            var autocomplete = new google.maps.places.Autocomplete(input); 

            var myLatlng = new google.maps.LatLng(latitude,longitude);
        map = new google.maps.Map(map_canvas, map_options);
        marker = new google.maps.Marker({
        position: myLatlng,
        map: map,
        title: address



        google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, 'load', initializeField);  

<apex:form id="form" ><b> <apex:outputLabel value="Global Address Search" for="field" /></b>&nbsp;
<apex:inputTextarea id="field" cols="25" rows="5" />
