Custom marker generators

There are some fancy free services that generate custom marker icons for us. Google Chart API provides many useful labeled map pin types. Even tilted ones.

Graham has released a fascinating service that generates all the needed files from an image file of your own. You upload the image as png, gif or jpeg and instantly you can download a zipped package containing:
  • 24-bit png icon image
  • shadow
  • printImage
  • mozPrintImage
  • printShadow
  • transparent
  • imageMap array
Wou!
