Customized Map Markers
Map markers or pins are used to mark out locations on the map. In Maply, the default map marker for a location is a red dot. Many times, you may want to change it to something more meaningful to represent locations with different meanings.
Maply offers close to pre-defined 200 icons for marker customisation. Below are some examples.
To find the perfect icon, you can type keywords in the search box, and related icons will show up instantly. Below shows the results for transport related.
Here is another on business.
And another on stores.
You can change the colors of the markers from the color picker.
You can make insightful visuals as the example below, which visualize the population of the U.S. by states.
Use your own images as location markers
In addition, you can upload your own images and use them as marker icons (Not available under FREE plan).
Clicking the red plus button will bring to a page where new images can be uploaded and existing images can be managed.
Markers can be customized at layer level or individually. To change marker icons at layer level, click "change icon" at layer menu.
To do it for a particular marker, simply click the marker and choose interests icon, as in the screenshot below.
