How to Configure Virtual Map View in SharePoint 2013 – Part Two

Part Two: How to Customize the Marker Type for Virtual Map View.

In Virtual Map View Web Part, we have only seven default marker types. Wanting to customize it to is
understandable. In this article, I’ll show you how to display other marker types.

When we configure the display on the map, our seven default
marker types are House, Plus, Point, Sun, Red, Blue and Yellow. So the question
is: How can we customize our own?

For example: we create a Country column and add seven items with
different Country Names.

First of all, we should have some picture files for each
Country Name. We can use *.png; *.gif and etc. In this example, I’ll name the
files following the Country Names and the pictures will be the Flags of
Countries.

How does it work?

Go to the path: C:\Program
Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server
Extensions\wpresources\Bamboo.VirtualMapView\1.0.0.0__2cc91efae2d531be

Copy and paste the pictures file into the
folder. 

Then we will
set Marker Types for them as follows:

Country
Name

Marker
Type

Australia

Australia

VietNam

VietNam

Brazil

Brazil

Mexico

Mexico

Spain

Spain

Canada

Canada

United States

USA

Let’s Modify
the Tool Pane. Go to the Marker type
field and click on the Edit button.

It will
display a pop-up window. We need to change the Marker Type filed base on Icon Name and Country Name fields.

Click Save.

Check on the
Use Multiple Markers check box; it will show a drop down menu showing
all list columns. Select the Country/Region
column.

Click Apply
and then OK, There are now many Maker Types on the Map View following Country
Names.
