To install the gem, simply type "gem install googlestaticmap" (the gem is on gemcutter, and I believe you need version 1.3.6 or higher of Rubygems to get gems from there). Documentation for the gem is at http://coordinatecommons.com/googlestaticmap with several examples of how to use it. Also if you want to see the source, it's on Github at http://github.com/brentsowers1/googlestaticmap.
