I want to upload an image I have into the google map api and add custom markers to it. I can already get as far as having my map in the API I just can't figure out how to set markers. Is there an easy to use a program or anything I can use to simply click on the map where I want a marker and then upload a file to me webhosting?

This is the map I want to add markers too but I will be adding them on a different domain and host.

It's a mapdump for an online mmo.
Any help or links to tutorials would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Gamer2bn,

This is a piece of a php script I used to place markers on the coordinates fed by another program.
I think this is more or less similar to what you are looking for.
There isn't much php in this piece, so I'm hoping you can figure out what I did.



function createMarker(point, iconname, info) {
		var icon = new GIcon(baseIcon);
		icon.image = "<?php echo $urlAddress1 ?>/Images/now.png";
		var title = "<?php echo $tijdstip ?>";
		icon.iconAnchor = new GPoint(10, 35);
		var marker = new GMarker(point, icon);
		  var point1 = new GLatLng(  <?php echo $latmineen ?>,   <?php echo $longmineen ?>);
		  var point2 = new GLatLng(  <?php echo $latmintwee ?>,   <?php echo $longmintwee ?>);
		  var point3 = new GLatLng(  <?php echo $latmindrie ?>,   <?php echo $longmindrie ?>);
		  var point4 = new GLatLng(  <?php echo $latminvier ?>,   <?php echo $longminvier ?>);
		  var point5 = new GLatLng(  <?php echo $latminvijf ?>,   <?php echo $longminvijf ?>);
		  var now = "<?php echo $tijdstip ?>";
		  var icon = "<?php echo $urlAddress1 ?>/Images/now.png";
		  var icon1 = new GIcon();
		  icon1.image = "<?php echo $urlAddress1 ?>/Images/blauw1.png";
		  icon1.iconAnchor = new GPoint(10, 35);
		  var title1 = "<?php echo $tijdmineen ?>";
		  var title2 = "<?php echo $tijdmintwee ?>";
		  var title3 = "<?php echo $tijdmindrie ?>";
		  var title4 = "<?php echo $tijdminvier ?>";
		  var title5 = "<?php echo $tijdminvijf ?>";
		  var icon2 = new GIcon();
		  icon2.image = "<?php echo $urlAddress1 ?>/Images/blauw2.png";
		  icon2.iconAnchor = new GPoint(10, 35);
		  var icon3 = new GIcon();
		  icon3.image = "<?php echo $urlAddress1 ?>/Images/blauw3.png";
		  icon3.iconAnchor = new GPoint(10, 35);
		  var icon4 = new GIcon();
		  icon4.image = "<?php echo $urlAddress1 ?>/Images/blauw4.png";
		  icon4.iconAnchor = new GPoint(10, 35);
		  var icon5 = new GIcon();
		  icon5.image = "<?php echo $urlAddress1 ?>/Images/blauw5.png";
		  icon5.iconAnchor = new GPoint(10, 35);
		map.addOverlay(new GMarker(point1, {title: title1, icon: icon1}))
		map.addOverlay(new GMarker(point2, {title: title2, icon: icon2}))
		map.addOverlay(new GMarker(point3, {title: title3, icon: icon3}))
		map.addOverlay(new GMarker(point4, {title: title4, icon: icon4}))
		map.addOverlay(new GMarker(point5, {title: title5, icon: icon5}))
		map.addOverlay(createMarker(point, {title: now, icon: icon}))

I found a lot of usefull stuff about Google maps at this site:

Thanks, that should work. I was hoping someone had made a user interface to add markers by now. I wanted other people to be able to add markers without access to any files. I should be able to at least just have them send me a screenshot to show where they want the markers though.

The php script does get the latitude and longitude from an xml file it gets fed from another program.

We use it to follow the trucks at our company. :)

Not sure if you can use php on your site, but then you might be able to work out an interface.

Bummer. :)

It's not that difficult though. Can you tell me a little more about what you had in mind?
