The WPGeo plugin must be activated for your site by an administrator, and needs a Google Maps API key. You can tell if it is active by looking at the Plugins page on your site’s Dashboard, or if this symbol appears in the visual editor:

If you use the other controls, you can set the title of the pin (default is the title of page or post) and customize the zoom and appearance of your map. Your readers will see the map you created in your page or post, and have the option to open it in Google Maps for further exploration.
