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 control 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.

@{ 
    var data = new[]
    {
        new { latitude=  40.7424509, longitude = -74.0081468, city = "New York"}
    };
    var border = new Syncfusion.EJ2.Maps.MapsBorder
    {
        Width = 2,
        Color = "#333",
        Opacity = 1
    };
}

<div id="map">
    <ejs-maps id="maps">
        <e-maps-layers>
            <e-maps-layer shapeData="ViewBag.usmap">
                <e-layersettings-markers>
                    <e-layersettings-marker visible="true" shape="Circle" fill="white" width="2" animationDuration="0" border="border" dataSource="data" ></e-layersettings-marker>
                </e-layersettings-markers>
            </e-maps-layer>
        </e-maps-layers>
    </ejs-maps>
</div>

        {
            ViewBag.usmap = GetUSMap();
            ViewBag.usMap = GetMap();
            return View();
        }
        public object GetUSMap()
        {
            string allText = System.IO.File.ReadAllText("./wwwroot/scripts/MapsData/USA.json");
            return JsonConvert.DeserializeObject(allText);
        }
        public object GetMap()
        {
            string allText = System.IO.File.ReadAllText(Server.MapPath("~/App_Data/USA.json"));
            return JsonConvert.DeserializeObject(allText, typeof(object));
        }
    }
}

Step 2:

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

@{ 
    var data = new[]
    {
        new { latitude=  40.7424509, longitude = -74.0081468, city = "New York"}
    };
    var data1 = new[]
    {
        new { latitude=  33.5302186, longitude = -117.7418381, city = "Laguna Niguel"}
    };
    var data2 = new[]
    {
        new { latitude=  37.6276571, longitude = -122.4276688, city = "San Bruno"}
    };
    var border = new Syncfusion.EJ2.Maps.MapsBorder
    {
        Width = 2,
        Color = "#333",
        Opacity = 1
    };
    var border1 = new Syncfusion.EJ2.Maps.MapsBorder
    {
        Width = 2,
        Color = "#333",
        Opacity = 1
    };
    var border2 = new Syncfusion.EJ2.Maps.MapsBorder
    {
        Width = 2,
        Color = "blue",
        Opacity = 1
    };
}
