Display a Marker on the map using Leaflet

This tutorial shows how to add the default marker to the map using Leaflet JS.

  1. Copy the following code, paste it into your favorite text editor, and save it as a .html file.

  2. Replace YOUR_MAPTILER_API_KEY_HERE with your actual MapTiler API key.

  3. The next is up to you. You can center your map wherever you desire (modifying the starting position) and set an appropriate zoom level (modifying the starting zoom) to match your users’ needs. Additionally, you can change the map’s look (by updating the source URL); choose from a range of visually appealing map styles from our extensive MapTiler standard maps, or create your own to truly differentiate your application.

  4. Create a new marker using the L.marker function. Set Lat/Lng of the marker and finally added it to the current map using .addTo() function.

         L.marker([55.665957, 12.550343]).addTo(map);
