Right. The demo, I am presuming, uses the Google Maps API and possibly the parallel API from Microsoft, as well. (Like maps.lds.org does today) And the application would be custom-programmed at lds.org. It would not necessarily look like the Google Maps public web site at all, but it might.
What brooksby mentioned in his original post was the "My Maps" section of the public Google web site. That is another creature entirely. It is a third-party web site, and using it to display maps and data downloaded from MLS or LUWS is pretty clearly coloring outside the lines of church policy.
(There are other ways to use Google Maps, even My Maps, in ways that do not violate policy, but brooksby seems to be talking about a straight upload to My Maps.)
