Add different types of markers

Different marker objects can be added to the Maps component using the marker settings. To update different marker settings in Maps, please follow the given steps:

Step 1:

Initialize the Maps component with marker settings. Here, a marker has been added with specified latitude and longitude of California by using the dataSource property. To customize the shape of the marker using the shape property and change the border color and width of the marker using the border property as mentioned in the following example.

import { Component, ViewEncapsulation } from '@angular/core';
import { usa_map } from 'usa.ts';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-container',
    // specifies the template string for the maps component
    template:`<ejs-maps id='container'>
    <e-layers>
    <e-layer [shapeData]='usmap' [markerSettings]='markerSettings'></e-layer>
    </e-layers>
    </ejs-maps>`,
    encapsulation: ViewEncapsulation.None
  })
  export class AppComponent {
       public usmap=usa_map;
       public markerSettings = [
        {
            dataSource: [
                { latitude: 37.0000, longitude: -120.0000, city: 'California' }
            ],
            visible:true,
            shape:'Circle',
            fill:'white',
            width:3,
            animationDuration:0,
            border:{width:2,color:'#333'}
       }
    ]
}
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { MapsModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-maps';
import { LegendService, MarkerService, MapsTooltipService, DataLabelService, BubbleService, NavigationLineService, SelectionService, AnnotationsService, ZoomService } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-maps';
/**
 * Module
 */
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        BrowserModule, MapsModule
    ],
    declarations: [AppComponent],
    bootstrap: [AppComponent],
     providers: [LegendService, MarkerService, MapsTooltipService, DataLabelService, BubbleService, NavigationLineService , SelectionService, AnnotationsService, ZoomService]
   
})
export class AppModule { }
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { AppModule } from './app.module';

enableProdMode();
platformBrowserDynamic().bootstrapModule(AppModule);

Step 2:

Customize the above option for n number of markers as mentioned in the following example.

import { Component, ViewEncapsulation } from '@angular/core';
import { usa_map } from 'usa.ts';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-container',
    // specifies the template string for the maps component.
    template:`<ejs-maps id='container'>
    <e-layers>
    <e-layer [shapeData]='usmap' [markerSettings]='markerSettings'></e-layer>
    </e-layers>
    </ejs-maps>`,
    encapsulation: ViewEncapsulation.None
  })
  export class AppComponent {
       public usmap=usa_map;
       // Initializing Map with Marker sttings.
       public markerSettings = [
        {
            dataSource: [
                { latitude: 37.0000, longitude: -120.0000, city: 'California' }
            ],
            visible:true,
            shape:'Circle',
            fill:'white',
            width:3,
            animationDuration:0,
            border:{width:2,color:'#333'}
        },
        {
            dataSource: [
                { latitude: 40.7127, longitude: -74.0059, city: 'New York' }
            ],
            visible:true,
            shape:'Rectangle',
            fill:'yellow',
            width:15,
            height:4,
            animationDuration:0,
            border:{width:2,color:'#333'}
        },
        {
            dataSource: [
                { latitude: 42, longitude: -93, city: 'Iowa' }
            ],
            visible:true,
            shape:'Diamond',
            fill:'white',
            width:10,
            height:10,
            animationDuration:0,
            border:{width:2,color:'blue'}
        },
        {
            dataSource: [
                { latitude:36.499589049395055, longitude:-103.042108197135548, city:'New Mexico'}
            ],
            visible:true,
            shape:'Balloon',
            fill:'red',
            width:10,
            height:15,
            animationDuration:0,
            border:{width:2,color:'#333'}
        },
        {
            dataSource: [
                { latitude:36.360624205142919, longitude:-94.595916790727287, city:'Oklahoma'}
            ],
            visible:true,
            shape:'Triangle',
            fill:'blue',
            width:10,
            animationDuration:0,
            border:{width:2,color:'#333'}
        }
