These icons have been created for use on maps with a legend in a sidebar when more than 26 id's are needed. For up to 26 id's you are better off with capital letters (A to Z) on the marker: they need only one character, which allows the markers to be a bit smaller. And each pixel counts if you don't want your whole map to be covered with icons.
// base icon for all markers var icon = new GIcon(); icon.shadow = ""; /* no marker shadow used in favour of map usability */ icon.iconSize = new GSize(17, 19); icon.iconAnchor = new GPoint(0, 19); icon.infoWindowAnchor = new GPoint(15, 1);
