I don't know much about web design but when I view the source code I see a lot of javascript and .js references. It isn't blocked by my active x being disabled, I don't think it's flash. Hope that helps!

get a plugin called firebug for firefox and check the code for http://dayzmap.info, from the looks of it he's put the map on an overlay of google maps slap bang in the middle of the atlantic ocean. Thus the google maps api, also he's running alot of scripts, these might be a little harder to understand unless you have some prior knowledge of a scripting language. Good luck.

I have the knowledge, i only hoped it could be possible to do this without the use of this google api. I dont like it and i dont like javascript...

I'm not a fan of the googlemaps api to be honest, it a bit ugly. Javascript is something I've never really looked at, I know Perl and some php. There must be other ways of gettign the same output this website has. You will need to use a scripting language of some type though.
