<legend>Symbol layer with built-in icon template</legend>
This sample shows how to use a built-in icon template a symbol layer. There are several icon templates available within the Azure Maps Web SDK.
These can use used to create custom versions of these icons where you can deinfe a primary and secondary color.
Additionally, the icon can be scaled before being added to the maps image manager.
It is recommened that icon templates be scaled to the maximum desired size and added to the map and then scaled down when rendered in layers rather than scaled up so that the icons don't become blurry.'
You can’t perform that action at this time.
