|Name||Description||Default||Applies to SVG|
|allow_overlap||Allow the symbolizer to overlap others.||false||yes|
|spacing||Distance between markers in pixels.||100||yes|
|max_error||Maximum amount the marker can be move from its designated place to avoid collisions. This value is a fraction of "spacing", e.g. spacing = 100, max_error = 0.2 then the maximum the marker can be moved is 20pixels, if this is not enough it isn't drawn at all.||0.2||yes|
|filename||The SVG file to use for the marker||built-in marker||yes|
|fill||Color of the marker fill, e.g. #FFFFFF. This property is only used when the marker is NOT an SVG graphic.||blue||no|
|stroke||CSS colour - A Color value such as 'green' or #A3D979||black||no|
|stroke-width||0.0 - n - Width of outline in pixels||1.0||no|
|stroke-opacity||0.0 - 1.0 - 1 is fully opaque while zero is fully transparent and .5 would be 50% transparent||1.0||no|
|width||width of marker||5||no|
|height||height of marker||5||no|
|placement||"point" or "line"||line||no (todo)|
|ignore-placement||"true" or "false"||"false"||no (todo)|
|marker_type||"arrow" "ellipse"||"arrow" if line placement, "ellipse" if point placement||no|
It can be added to a Rule with line features like:
The MarkersSymbolizer should draw blue directional arrows in the direction of the geometry (for things like one-way streets).
In case you notice arrows pointing the wrong direction, this means that the segment has been coded in the wrong way.
The ST_reverse function of Postgis can fix this (The problem will then be to identify the geometries that need to be updated).
<Rule> <MaxScaleDenominator>10000</MaxScaleDenominator> <MarkersSymbolizer spacing="100" file="/Users/artem/Desktop/svg/ladybird.svg" transform="translate(0 -16) scale(2.0)"/> </Rule>
NEW: Starting from r2158 MarkersSymbolizer supports width/height/fill/stroke properties to dynamically draw circles (w == h) or ellipses (w != h) when no SVG file is supplied:
<MarkersSymbolizer fill="darkorange" opacity=".7" width="20" height="10" stroke="orange" stroke-width="7" stroke-opacity=".2" placement="point" marker_type="ellipse"/>
CAVEAT: these properties do not apply to SVG files, and SVG transforms are not supported for modifying ellipses (yet).
