It's not really an API interface. You give it points and it prints out HTML. No network traffic (unless you use the Geo::Coder::Google functionality) and no web scraping.

This module provides a simple and clear means of quickly producing HTML Google maps with plotted points. There's not much error-checking, and my initial install failed because the distribution did not check the version number of Geo::Coder::Google, upon which it depends, and which underwent a major API change between the time when I last updated my install, and the author of HTML::GoogleMaps wrote his module. With a little work, this module could turn into a useful utility.
Of course, this is not a recommended approach to working with Google Maps, but that is another story.
