I am generating a Google KML file with a number of points. For some set of these points I want to have markers which are say Red and for the others I want markers which are say Blue. For all the markers I want a unique label eg: 'A', 'B', 'C'.
I found a downloaded a large set of markers from the net, with different colors and labels.. eg all red A-Z, all blue, A-Z. so it is fairly easy to generate a url to select the correct marker eg .../markers/blue_markerB.p
ng. and this is what I was in the process of doing. However, when the marker is displayed Google has distorted the shape (squat and wide).
So my question(s) are:
Why is Google doing this?
Can I fix it.?
Is there a set of compound/layered markers which Google supplies eg Blue+Letter that I can use and how are they used (code example please)?
Hope this make sense.
Attached is my test KLM code, a png of a distorted marker and a png of a marker as it should be.
