Add custom map markers


Customize your maps fully to your own personal preferences by adding some custom map markers. In the Spotzi Mapbuilder there are two methods to add map markers:

Adding map markers for a whole layer

Want to change the color or your icon?
That depends on the file type you are uploading. Our predefined icons and SVG files can be changed into another color. A PNG and JPG file can’t be changed.

5. If you want to add your own custom map marker to your map, click the tab that says YOUR ICONS. Here you can upload an image file (e.g. png, jpg, svg).

8. After confirming your choice, you can choose the fill opacity and the marker size. In this example I set the marker size to 60. Otherwise the marker is too small to see. Press APPLY to change your marker.

Keep in mind!
The marker size is locked. That means that the marker won’t change size when you zoom into the map. 

Adding map markers for a separate feature


1. To add custom map markers for a separate feature, click the map feature you want to edit and press the EDIT STYLING button in the infowindow.
