Mapping many points with one point highlighted

Jump to: navigation, search

Hello, I'm making a website which shows a map of a campus. I'm using this very cool extension to generate that map automatically using the coordinates on each building's page. Currently on the page for each building I show a small map in the infobox with a market showing where that build is (just using the standard Maps extension). If possible, I'd like to make it so that map also shows points for the other buildings so that people can click on a nearby building for info on it. But I need the building the current page discusses to stand out, maybe by using a different marker. Is there any way to do this? Thanks.

Yes, you can do this. I know someone has a site that's a perfect example for this but don't remember what it's called... You could try asking on the SMW user list I guess.

Either way, you need the staticlocations parameter, which allows you to set the location specified on the page as a marker and associate some other icon with it.
