    Could it be possible to have "Bold" and "Italic" Styles for Numbers and Letters ?


    • We need to limit the numbers of options. Bold, italic, Custom fonts, font size are features we can’t do.

      We just released the new site with lots of features, now it’s time to rest a little bit 🙂

    Awesome site and awesome work!!

  3. WOW !!, great help, thanks…. I was wondering if anyone here can help me with the tutorial as to how to make customize map icon. I would like to make the one for my own website. However, all the icons given here are amazing.

    Thank you so much for doing this great work. I hope you can give me some advice. I have generated your icons with a custom colour and would like to download a zip file with the Light style. But what I actually download is the Default style. The Light button in the Style panel is active, and I have tried clearing my cache, but still I receive the Default style. This is still good, but for my purpose the Light design would look better. I realize I can download the numbers individually too, but I prefer the one-step process to the 50-step one!

    This site is awesome. Thanks for the amazing work!

    So what am I missing about this so-called "custom color"? Two different computers on two different networks using three different browsers, and the only "custom color" I'm generating is the exact same shade of gray.

    • nicomollet says:

      "custom color" is still working as far as I know. What are you trying to do ? style, number to 300, zip ? in what order ? Maybe try to empty the browser cache.

    • Gilles says:

      I finally understood how it works… You cannot click on the colour map to pick a colour (contrary to what the target cursor suggests), you have to grab the circle and move it around. Same for the hue bar: you cannot click on a colour, you have to grab the handles.
      I still don't know what the bottom right button does.

    Let me be blunt: these are not improvements.

    I went to the original Google site to find further numeric icons to a map, and automatically followed the redirect. Now that I've tried adding some the new icons and can contrast them with the old, the new ones, I see, are awful. Specifically:

    – The shape has been changed from a landscaped-oriented rectangle to a square. Now they don't match. Fine, maybe you wanted some consistency, but I don't really see the point.
    – The new font is smaller, uglier, and harder to read. Don't see the point of that, either, but maybe you had your reasons.
    – Many of the numbers are off-center. Seriously? How hard would that be to get right? There's no excuse for that.
    – The customize color feature doesn't work. You can have any color you want, as long as it's dark gray.

    Thank goodness I discovered, after I scrolled down the old page, that the old icons are still available.

    This is so great and easy to use. In 2 minutes I could create 2 different color icons with different numbers on them so I could "key" my google map. Awesome, thank you so much!

    Hi guys,

    This is very cool. But I'm having trouble with the zip downloads. It always contains the default set, even after I change colors and I can see the colors I chose on the screen. What am I doing wrong?

  10. steven says:

    Zip doesn't work for "classic" and "white" styles, it contains the "default" style instead.

  11. Dan says:

    I cannot hotlink anymore… makes it kind of useless for google…

  12. Natalie says:

    I can't get it to update the colors when I "generate" – what am I doing wrong?

  13. lmjbre says:

    Hey, just wanted to say thanks for the great icons! I needed some markers for a custom map to show the sites I sampled things from… I'm using the map in a presentation, I hope that's okay! They're just really handy for presenting 🙂 Thanks once again for taking the time to do this.

  14. Joe says:

    Can you have the font color different from the background? I can't seem to figure it out

  15. Henri says:

    Am I doing something wrong?
    – I cleared my cache
    – Selected the "white" set
    – Generated a set with black as font color
    – Clicked on Zip file
    Icons I get are all with white as font color on red background color 🙁

  16. Henri says:

    Retried and this time got icons on a green background 8-
    Seems like I get random colors! Are downloads cached across users or something?

  17. Susan Swanberg says:

    I created a map for an assignment, used these icons, but when the instructor looked at my map the icons did not show up. Instead, a message appeared on the map indicating that hot linking had been disabled. What's going on!! It affected my grade! If anyone has an explanation, I would really appreciate it.


  18. nicomollet says:

    Am I the one being rude ?

    You are accusing me to be responsible for your grade. Am I supposed to take it easy?

    By the way, I don't have any customer. This material is free.

  19. neednumbers says:

    I'm looking for number icons in the 300's, i.e. 302, 304 etc… anyone know where I can find them?

  20. Herson says:

    And I'm looking for numbers until 999… Could someone help me?

  21. Elliott says:

    Awesome work, loving the new home of map icons on t'internet.

  22. Pete says:

    Would love to have numbers over 300 (perhaps up to 999)

  23. Shannon says:

    How do I get the numbered icons to show up on the Google map I created? I downloaded them, but Google wants a URL when I "add icons."

    Thanks in advance,

  24. Ivan Ogai says:

    Would love to have two-letter icons: AA, AB, AC, …, BA, BB, BC, … ZZ

    How to show information in lable/balloon form (like ms streets and trips).

  26. mattbju says:

    use this and change the number 7 to whatever number u want 🙂

  27. barcaxavi says:

    That is such a great work, and a big help to me. Really considering buying you some beer 🙂 Thank You!

  28. Ben Incani says:

    Great work!

    Here is a batch file which uses ImageMagick to reduce the icon size. Just create a .bat file on your desktop and drag and drop your icons onto it.

    @echo off

    rem ***************************************************************************
    rem ***************************************************************************

    rem Take the cmd-line, remove all until the first parameter
    set "params=!cmdcmdline:~0,-1!"
    set "params=!params:*" =!"
    set count=0

    rem Split the parameters on spaces but respect the quotes
    for %%G IN (!params!) do (
    set /a count+=1
    set "item_!count!=%%~G"
    rem echo !count! %%~G

    rem list the parameters
    for /L %%n in (1,1,!count!) DO (
    echo %%n convert !item_%%n!
    convert "!item_%%n!" ^
    -background none ^
    -gravity center ^
    -extent 26x31 ^
    -resize 20x24 "!item_%%n!"

    REM ** The exit is important, so the cmd.ex doesn't try to execute commands after ampersands

  29. Mauricio says:

    Could it be possible to have black fonts for numbers and letters? White numbers and letters don´t be visible in some background colors. That option can be in "light" button.

  30. TLR says:

    This is great! Thanks so much!

  31. Silio Silvestre says:

    How to show numbers and letters in a maker, for example "A1", "D4"…?

  32. Boris says:

    Is it possible to get a set of numeric icons >300?

  33. Wickee says:

    Any chance of this coming back? I know the other icon customization is back.

  34. nicomollet says:

    This page will come back at a later date, I can't give a date at the moment.

  35. David says:

    Nicolas thanks for this site it has been really helpful, I am wondering when you might reinstate this numbers and letters page as I am interested in using them for a project? would it be possible to host some collections of web safe colors somewhere?

  36. @undefined says:

    Would love to see the numbers up again with numbers over 10 to 30?

  37. Brennan says:

    Got anything for a smoking section?

  38. Rogerio Vianna says:

    HI, it is possible to generate small images?

  39. ac3247 says:

    Thank you for this nice site. Only problem : how to download zip-file? Downloadbutton seems to generate something, but nothing happens afterwards. Thank you for any usefull reactions!

  40. Rogerio Vianna says:

    Please, I need a smaller icon, less than 32 x 37, ex: 25 x 29. It is possible to choose a size?

    • nicomollet says:

      Rogerio, I already replied to your first message regarding the size 🙂
      No it's not possible sorry, one size only.
