In this article I will explain how to move a marker to different locations on Google Maps i.e. How to change (update) position of a marker on Google Maps without refreshing the map.
Move Google Maps Markers: Change (Update) Marker position on Google Maps without refreshing
The following code snippet consists of an array of markers of different geographic address locations. Each marker in the array contains title, latitude, longitude and description of the location.
Inside the window.onload event handler, the LoadMap function is executed which displays the Google Map and also populates the first marker from the array on the map.
There is set of RadioButtons, where each RadioButron represents a location present in the JavaScript array. When a RadioButton is clicked the SetMarker function is executed and the value of the selected RadioButton is passed as parameter.
Using the value parameter, the details of the location is fetched and the marker position is updated on the Google Maps.
