Picture marker symbol
Use pictures for markers.
When marking geoelements on a map, using custom, unique symbols can be helpful for highlighting and differentiating between locations. For example, a tourism office may use pictures of landmarks as symbols on an online map or app, to help prospective visitors to orient themselves more easily around a city.
