Customized Icon?

I am looking to change the icons on a map dependent on the data, and I think I noticed a new feature has been added that does exactly this. “Data Dependent” option in Customzied Icon. It is looking for “Icon Field” … but there are no options. What do I need to put on the form to enble this ?

Thanks.

The way it works is that you save in the database the image you want to use for each entry. So you should create a field ‘icon’ of type image for the type you’re displaying on the map, and then you’ll pick that field in the ‘Icon Field’ section.

I shall use the overused word … Awesome :smile:

Sounds like I can have user generated icons too, if a user can save their own image and I can scale it.

Is there a recommended type and size ?

Right, you can for instance use their picture, etc.

The map element resizes the icon to 35px, so that should just work. Any image (png preferred) is good.

@NigelG

is it possible to just change the color of a standard googlemaps marker according to a datafield?

(instead of uploading a whole new data dependent icon?)

I agree with @sophia it would be great to be able to add a condition to the maps marker based on some data field to add a customized icon. so I could make restaurants one icon and other locations another icon, etc

You can already.

Although it doesn’t work all that well when you zoom, as the icons don’t scale.
