This page shows examples for basic maps rendered with Google Maps with point specific data.

syntax
The data is added in the format Location~Title~Label~Icon. If one data item is omitted it is still required to keep the data divider "~" in place, e. g. Location~Title~~Icon. If you are using the parser function every line end is indicated by the line end indicator ";".
This does not work with the OpenLayers or Leaflet service.

Examples

In Maps 3.x and later, you can still use customized markers by specifying the marker files without adding the "File" name space as this example shows. See issue 51 for more information. Adding "File:Blue_marker.png" instead of "Blue_marker.png" does not work.

Same as the first example but with an icon from an external source. Usually icons are pictures which have been uploaded to the wiki and are accessed the same way files are.
