Customize your Google Map Markers

In his previous post JoeVains shared with you a pack of location icons. This post is for those who do not have much experience with customizing Google maps with Google Maps Javascript API.

I’ll show you how to generate a map and add markers using our location icons (you can also use your own if you wish). We’ll discuss improving user experience and browsers inconsistencies. Enjoy!
