Icons And Pins

How to I associate a pin / icon with a property?

First, navigate to the "Pin Icons and Colors" layout in ProMaps and you'll see names for each icon. These names will be used to link the icon to your map entries in the next step.

Now edit the calc field "gm_MarkerName" that you added to your properties table. You'll see that this is a simple case statement where you describe the criteria by which a give icon is used for a given property. So if I made a new icon named "Awesome Blue Dot", I could use this for properties with a Status "Blah" using the calc shown here:

Note that the fields you reference, have to be in the Properties table, but they don't need to be limited to just the status field. You can base the icon upon any property criteria you can think of.

Can I use my own pin & icon images?

Sure. Navigate to the "Pin Icons and Colors" layout in ProMaps and you'll see a list of icons. Add your own by clicking the plus sign, or right-click in an existing icon to change its image.

You can also add marker labels (numbers probably work better than names) to the pins using the Google Maps API. Instructions and an example are here:
