This is something similar I have seen.

Look at https://bixi.com

It is basically what I was talking about: A staticly generated file that the google map (in this case, could be open street map) reads and points to be plotted.

Yes. We need database. 

But you could dump in a static format and your plotter will use it instead of hitting database for each visitor.

>> Meaning that you were able to do something similar to what I'm describing with Google Maps?  I understand that you can manually set up a map using the service and their plot many locations function, http://maps.google.com/help/maps/getmaps/plot-multi.html. However, what I need to do is manage the locations automatically through a table on the hosting server which maintains city or country names, coordinates, etc. Each hotspot will include a link to a profile. So I would have to write to the maps file that is maintained on the local host.
