What are the different controls for Google Maps?

On a Google map you can find a number of controls. Some of them are there by default and there are some controls you can specify and enable.

The default controls are:

Zoom             - slider or +/- button to control zoom level
Pan                 - a control for panning the map
MapType       - a toggle to choose either road-map or satellite view
StreetView     - a thumbnail overview map showing the current viewport, Pegman

Google Maps support these other controls:

Scale
Rotate
Overview map


You use the setOptions() method to change map options.

To disable default controls use this:
disableDefaultUI:true
If you want to turn on controls you need to include the following:

panControl:true,
zoomControl:true,
mapTypeControl:true,
scaleControl:true,
streetViewControl:true,
overviewMapControl:true,
rotateControl:true
