Project -

Currently a custom marker is used on the google map element to show where node points are.

I would like to have one additional marker to show where the development site is located. This is not a node it's just a visual reference point on the map so people know where the site is.

Example found here

I would add a dummy node to the project, say a 20 x 10px png and then give it a tag, I'm using the tag Johann in the attached project.
Then you can add this to the map.

I am using the Map Element Map Pin component but modified it.
The Open next panorama action has been moved to the map_pin_normal element and it also has an Alpha Expression that says don't show if the tag = johann.

If you give the dummy node a User Data title it will show on hover.
