Display simple marker on the map

This comprehensive step-by-step tutorial provides a detailed explanation of how to incorporate a default Marker onto a map. By following this tutorial you will be able to create a map with a pin.

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

  2. Install the npm package.

  3. Include the CSS file.

    If you have a bundler that can handle CSS, you can import the CSS or include it with a <link> in the head of the document via the CDN

  4. Include the following code in your JavaScript file (Example: app.js).

  5. Replace YOUR_MAPTILER_API_KEY_HERE with your actual MapTiler API key.

  6. 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.

  7. Create a new marker using the .marker function. Set Lng/Lat of the marker using .setLngLat() function, and finally add it to the current map using .addTo() function.

         const marker = new maptilersdk.Marker()
           .setLngLat([12.550343, 55.665957])
