Marker symbols are used to draw Point graphics in a FeatureLayer or individual graphics in a 2D MapView. To create new marker symbols, use either SimpleMarkerSymbol or PictureMarkerSymbol.

Marker symbols may also be used to symbolize 2D polygon features. The image below depicts a FeatureLayer whose polygon features are styled with SimpleMarkerSymbols.

Marker symbols can be used in a 3D SceneView. However, it is recommended you use PointSymbol3D instead.
