Display Google Maps Multiple Markers Different Icons

In general, we create marker on google map by using default icon, which its color is red. Well, now in this tutorial we will create five markers for five locations with different icons.

In this tutorial, we use the icon that we have stored in the local directory. If you want to use url address which provide icon, the principle is same, just change the path of icon.

Here is the output we will create in next stage, as shown in Figure 1 below:

As shown in Fig.1, we have five locations marked with markers. Where each for the location has a different icon marker.

Another Example About Making Markers on Google Maps :

As described above, we prepare the icon that we store in the local directory. Here we suppose the marker icon is in the directory: icon.

Here is the script to call the path of each icon:
// we create variabel iconMarker to hold the location of icon
    var iconMarker = 'icon/';
    // variable uniqueIcons to store different icon
    var uniqueIcons = [
      iconMarker + 'red-dot.png',
      iconMarker + 'green-dot.png',
      iconMarker + 'blue-dot.png',
      iconMarker + 'orange-dot.png',
      iconMarker + 'purple-dot.png',
      iconMarker + 'pink-dot.png',      
      iconMarker + 'yellow-dot.png'
