Newbie-question: Ember and Google Maps


I am new to Ember. To be honest I am in the process of making the decision between Backbone and Ember.

In all tutorials I see examples of displaying blog posts. This is different, because in this case I do not want to fill a outlet-div. Instead I have to center the map at a given position, display an info-bubble for the marker and display a panel with details about that shop.
