# Geolocalization symbol

If you were very kind of suggest me how can I implement the geolocalization symbol inside a latex environment I would be greatly thankful of being granted of your ample knowledge and patience.

I'm looking for something like this

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Are you looking for a specific symbol? Perhaps you could add a picture of what you're looking for. Apr 28 '20 at 21:01
• Maybe \faMapMarker* from fontawesome5 ? Apr 28 '20 at 21:13
• Have a look at the brand new mercatormaps package.

• @Schrödinger'scat have you product-examples of this package? Apr 29 '20 at 12:55

I would suggest one of the following symbols from fontawesome5.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontawesome5}
\begin{document}
\faMapMarked{}
\faMapMarked*{}
\faMapMarker{}
\faMapMarker*{}
\faMapPin{}
\end{document}


If you want neither of these options, you could always construct another symbol out of those of fontawesome5. Here are two examples (which are far from perfect, but that might give a start).

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{fontawesome5}
\usepackage{bm}
\newlength{\markerwidth}
\settowidth{\markerwidth}{\faMapMarker}
\newcommand{\mapmarker}{%
\faMapMarker\hspace*{-\markerwidth}%
\raisebox{.6pt}{\makebox[\markerwidth][c]{%
\scalebox{.88}{\color{white}\faMapMarker}%
}}\hspace*{-\markerwidth}%
\raisebox{3.3pt}{\makebox[\markerwidth][c]{%
\scalebox{.7}{$$\bm{\circ}$$}%
}}%
}
\newcommand{\othermapmarker}{%
\faMapMarker\hspace*{-\markerwidth}%
\raisebox{.6pt}{\makebox[\markerwidth][c]{%
\scalebox{.88}{\color{white}\faMapMarker*}%
}}\hspace*{-\markerwidth}%
\raisebox{3.7pt}{\makebox[\markerwidth][c]{%
\scalebox{.5}{\color{white}\textbullet}%
}}%
}
\begin{document}
\faMapMarker*{}
\mapmarker{}
\othermapmarker{}
\end{document}
