Predefined Symbols (Marker)

This example uses a symbol to add a vector-based icon to a marker. The symbol uses one of the predefined vector paths ('CIRCLE') supplied by the Google Maps JavaScript API.

    document.getElementById("map") as HTMLElement,
    {
      zoom: 4,
      center: { lat: -25.363882, lng: 131.044922 }
    }
  );

  new google.maps.Marker({
    position: map.getCenter(),
    icon: {
      path: google.maps.SymbolPath.CIRCLE,
      scale: 10
    },
    draggable: true,
    map: map
