/* Here's how to add a coloured marker to a Google Map with a shadow in the
right place.
The pin itself is dynamically generated using the Google Charts API,
documented here:
Note however that this API was marked as deprecated on April 20th 2012
although it's not clear when or if it will be turned off.
var shadowImage = new google.maps.MarkerImage(
'', null, null,
new google.maps.Point(10, 34)
var point = new google.maps.LatLng(lat, lng);
var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
position: point,
map: map,
title: name,
icon: "|3491FF|000000",
shadow: shadowImage

If you add "_withshadow" at the end of "d_map_pin_letter" you get a pin with a shadow, without the need add it programmatically.
