Custom icons

Just discovered a custom icon collection project on Google Code. There are more than 900 icons this far.

It would be nice if those were provided in sprite format. Happily there are sprite-making services. SpriteMe is the most advanced of those.

Hi Esa!

I have this Map (http://www.coolmeia.org/educacaodemocraticaelivre.html) and i'm trying to change some icons in some markers, with no success.

I'm using your code, that uses markers and tooltips together.

What am i doing wrong?

It is the 'icon' option. Like:

makeMarker({
position: new ...,
title: "Escola...",
content: "<a href=\"ht...",
icon: "school.png"
});

I used some of them for my website with porn videos, they all are pretty great.

I just wanted to let everyone know that the map icons site (http://code.google.com/p/google-maps-icons) now has a new dedicated website http://mapicons.nicolasmollet.com with new features :

* you can choose you own colors
* download a group of icons, in a zip file
* you now have 7 icon styles
* a whole new presentation
