To map a location on Google maps just open a link with the argument "q=" followed by the latitude, a comma and then the longitude; i.e.
"http://maps.google.com/maps?q=40.1576076666667,-76.2958758333333"
The latitude and longitude can be decimal degrees or degrees, minutes and seconds. You can also specify the other parameters like the map type, zoom level, map-center point. etc. For a list of parameters look here: http://www.seomoz.org/ugc/everything-you-never-wanted-to-know-about-google-maps-parameters
