More on Google Maps – V2

I did some additional playing around with Google Maps.

In this version, I created (actually lifted) a custom heart icon for the markers to display on the map for some favorite locations at WDW.  I did not worry about transparency nor altering the underlying shadow.  Why a heart?  Because the bright red offers good contrast.

I added logic to display the overlay window (i.e., popup) when clicked on.  Once open, you can click on the simple name of the ride to be taken to that page.  I declined to spruce it up further for this demo.

You can view it in action at, and then get the page source to roll your own.  Please note that if I move it later, I will add a comment.
