I have a working GMAP view and I'd like to customize the markers basing on a list field.

I can't find documentations about this feature, in the settings of my view I setted

Marker Handling--> Use marker field


Field --> "myfield"

What I'd like to know is: does "myfield" has to be an image field or whatelse?


Have a look at the IP Geolocation Views & Maps module. Partial quote from its project page:

Despite what the name may suggest, IP Geolocation Views & Maps (IPGV&M) is first and foremost a mapping engine.

The module makes it very easy to create Views-based mapping solutions using the map renderer of your choice (Google, OpenLayers or Leaflet) with any location storage module of your choice, e.g.:

enter image description here

This allows you to bring together modules and feature sets that without IPGV&M you would not be able to combine.

Like beautiful animated marker clustering on Google or Bing or Mapbox ... any of various map providers.

But more importantly IPGV&M adds some features you won't find as conveniently packaged elsewhere.

These include marker differentiation based on field values or ranges (2nd screenshot) with or without font icons, various centering options, super-imposing the current visitor's location, allowing multiple content types to be displayed on the same map, full screen button and mini-map inset (bottom screenshot), polygon support (Geofield), marker tags and tool tips and cross-highlighting of associated content on the page when markers are hovered (and vice versa).

enter image description here

Head over to its (impressive) project page for even more information about it (it would be way too long to include a quote of it all here). That project page also includes various screenshots.

Note: Uploading custom markers should be possible also, similar to what you can see in the screenprint in the feature request about Custom markers.

  • @SmurfXXX merci for the extra feedback. What else can I say, except something like "thanks for also confirming what I always recommend for these kind of questions!" Ps about the time you saved: it doesn't even get invoiced ... – Pierre.Vriens Feb 15 '17 at 17:19
