 * Adds two SVG markers over the homes of the Chicago Bears and Chicago Cubs
 * @param  {H.Map} map      A HERE Map instance within the application

  //Create the svg mark-up
  var svgMarkup = '' +

  // Add the first marker
  var bearsIcon = new H.map.Icon(

 * Boilerplate map initialization code starts below:

//Step 1: initialize communication with the platform
var platform = new H.service.Platform({
  app_id: window.app_id,
  app_code: window.app_code,
  useHTTPS: true
var pixelRatio = window.devicePixelRatio || 1;
var defaultLayers = platform.createDefaultLayers({
  tileSize: pixelRatio === 1 ? 256 : 512,
  ppi: pixelRatio === 1 ? undefined : 320

//Step 2: initialize a map - this map is centered over Chicago.
var map = new H.Map(document.getElementById('map'),
  center: {lat:41.881944, lng:-87.627778},
  zoom: 11,
  pixelRatio: pixelRatio
// add a resize listener to make sure that the map occupies the whole container
window.addEventListener('resize', () => map.getViewPort().resize());

//Step 3: make the map interactive
// MapEvents enables the event system
// Behavior implements default interactions for pan/zoom (also on mobile touch environments)
var behavior = new H.mapevents.Behavior(new H.mapevents.MapEvents(map));

// Create the default UI components
  var ui = H.ui.UI.createDefault(map, defaultLayers);

// Now use the map as required...

        <p>Display a map with custom SVG markers</p>
    <p>This example displays a movable map of <b>Chicago</b> with two individually 
      colored SVG markers highlighting the location of <b>Soldier Field</b> <i>(41.8625°N, 87.6166°W)</i>
      and <b>Wrigley Field</b> <i>(41.9483°N, 87.6555°W)</i>. These locations are the home of the 
      Chicago Bears and Chicago Cubs respectively, and each marker displays the letter <b>C</b> in the correct club colors.</p>
