Hmmm... Is there a way to output the maps as a series of webpages?

Hey, while I am dreaming, why not just ask for the Google maps interface on
the maps that can be posted to webpages. Now, that would be really awesome!

Back to reality, A way to post maps as web pages that have links for
different size/zoom levels and with links to the sub maps... That would be
very helpful for my game.
