This will explain how to add the TI Logo as a location marker, and also get rid of the "Talk Bubble" on Google maps when you place it on your club website in the directions page.

This process is is a bit complicated, and on the difficulty scale I would rate it

I will explain some things, but you might have to go online and do some homework. :unsure:


This is going to take some time for some... Here goes. :)
  • Download the Toasmasters logo, resize it to a width of 34 pixels or a little less (keeping the ratio intact), trial and error here, will depend on your taste.
  • Upload resized logo to your clubs website, and copy the URL. ( go to a custom page and use the editor to upload to your website)





  • Use this link and delete my club # and put in yours:
http://reports.toastmasters.org/findaclub/zoomclub.cfm?ClubNumber=9434&imageField.x=0&imageField.y=0
  • Click on the google logo
  • Click on My places
  • Click Create Map
  • Change name from untitled to someting else.
  • Once you do that you will see 3 icons at the top left side of the map. (a hand, a drop pin and a squiggly line)
  • zoom in enough to see where your location is on the map
  • Now at this point click on the middle blue icon (drop pin) and drop it in the correct location.
  • name it appropriately
  • click on the blue pin with the blue box around it (just to the right of the name)
  • click on the add an icon link
  • paste in URL you copied previously (your tiny TI logo on your website)
  • Save
  • It should now look like this
  • now click on the link button at the top right of the map
  • then click on the customize and preview embedded map link
  • (this is where you make your detailed changes) zoom out a few clicks (some trial and error on your part is needed here too)
  • center the map the way you want it
  • then copy and past the HTML it creates for you.
  • DONE (whew!)

When you are done you should have a custom map with the TI logo as a location Marker and no "Talk Bubble".
It should look like this

Yea, that took a bit! WOW!

One more thing... I was logged in to my google account when I did it. I don't know if you have to be logged in, however I would assume so, as you have to save maps.

Alan, thanks so much for the very detailed process. I was hoping to do it more easily (quickly) just to import and put in place the image I sent, attached, which is the exact size of the present field. So it becomes a single image with no need to do anything except to import it. In my view, that's all needed to.... And you're more familiar with the code in the background, natch.

Possible?

Bill,

This is 5 years old, and we really have not looked at the process. I can try later this evening to see if I can streamline it.
