premium version only

There are four types of maps available. In addition to the familiar "painted" road map tiles, CedGoogleMap also supports other maps types. The following map types are available in CedGoogleMap:

A marker identifies a location on a map. By default, a marker uses a standard image. Markers can display custom images, in which case they are usually referred to as "icons." Up to 3 markers are supported. You can animate markers so that they exhibit dynamic movement in a variety of different circumstances.

CedGoogleMap support up to 3 marker with for each

The maps displayed through CedGoogleMap contain UI elements to allow user interaction with the map. These elements are known as controls and you can include variations of these controls in your application.

Up to 3 items can be displayed on top or bottom of map. These items are clickable and pan the content of the map to the location of the corresponding marker.

You are free to enter your snippet of code:

Example of html snippet

    <p class="vcard">
        <span class="adr">Galaxiis<br> 
        <span class="street-address">Street number</span>, 
        <span class="locality">Munich</span>,<br/> 
        <span class="postal-code">12345</span> 
        <span class="country">Germany</span><br/> 
        <span class="tel">Telephone: <span class="value">+xx xx xx xx xx</span></span><br/> 
        <span class="tel"><span class="type">Fax</span>: <span class="value">+xx xx xx xx xx</span></span></span>
</div> ```

## Layers

Layers are objects on the map that consist of one or more separate items, but are manipulated as a single unit. Layers generally reflect collections of objects that you add on top of the map to designate a common association. CedGoogleMap manages the presentation of objects within layers by rendering their constituent items into one object (typically a tile overlay) and displaying them as the map's viewport changes.


## Traffic layers
The Google Maps API allows you to add real-time traffic information (where supported) to your maps using theTrafficLayer object. Traffic information is provided for the time at which the request is made.


## Transit Layer 

The Google Maps API allows you to display the public transit network of a city on your map using the TransitLayer object. When the Transit Layer is enabled, and the map is centered on a city that supports transit information, the map will display major transit lines as thick, colored lines. The color of the line is set based upon information from the transit line operator. Enabling the Transit Layer will alter the style of the base map to better emphasize transit routes.
Transit information is only available in select locations. To see a list of cities where public transit information is currently available, please consult [this list](https://www.google.com/landing/transit/cities/index.html).
If you’re a public agency that oversees public transportation for your city and would like your data to be included, please visit the Google Transit Partner Program site to learn more.
The following example shows the Transit layer enabled on a map of London, UK:


## Bicycling Layer

The Google Maps API allows you to add bicycle information to your maps using the BicyclingLayer object. TheBicyclingLayer renders a layer of bike paths, suggested bike routes and other overlays specific to bicycling usage on top of the given map. Additionally, the layer alters the style of the base map itself to emphasize streets supporting bicycle routes and de-emphasize streets inappropriate for bicycles.
The following example shows the Bicycle layer enabled on a map of Cambridge, MA:


! Dark green routes indicated dedicated bicycle routes. Light green routes indicate streets with ! dedicated “bike lanes.” Dashed routes indicate streets or paths otherwise recommended for bicycle usage.
