Google Maps Icons

Yesterday I was working on a Google Maps application and wanted to show a bunch of different types of markers on the map. Rather than creating my own icons, I did a bit of Googling around. Turns out, Google offers over 100 icons that aren't documented.

Check out this thread for a list of them.

Everything from the arts () to a webcam () is available.

Even if you aren't working with Google Maps, it's probably worth checking out this set of icons. Icons are ridiculously difficult to create - they need to be both small and instantly recognizable - so good examples are extremely helpful.

Update: Peter was kind enough to point me to this link which displays all those icons.
