Types

Customise how Overlays are displayed on the Map.

When you add an Overlay (a Marker, Line or Shape) to the Map you may want to style it in a certain way. In the case of Markers, you may want to use certain icons.

Types allow you set these styles once, so you can simply select it when you are adding to the Map. You can create Types in Waymark > Settings > Marker/Line/Shape Types.
