Hello World

Leaflet Map Markers with Font Awesome Icons

MapJam’s Leaflet marker library says “goodbye” to little red, boring, static map markers.

We’ve made it dead simple to color your marker to match your brand, add a Font Awesome icon, add a highlight “glowy” ring (or not), and size it from xl to xxl. Map notes (the little flag) can help your map tell a story. Highlight a special, the best place to park nearby, or the bike or delivery entrance of a building. Notes can be displayed to the left, or right, or only on hover.

With our small library of JavaScript functions you can programatically add, hide, show, delete, and restyle on-the-fly. Highlight search results or, as our example shows, with a little JavaScript you can put on a bit of a show!
