Greeting Fellas,

I was working on a requirement where I in a map I need to differentiate b/w two pins. 1 - Normal fuel station 2 - Partnered fuel station

I should show this two on the map with differentiation and also i need to show which brand does that fuel station belongs to.

Could anyone help me in it ?

Here is a basic idea which i tried

Made partnered bunks in red color which is our brand color and added a box with icons of both brand and out logo, but again its too much to think. how do i make it simple .

    Do the users care whether a station is partnered? Or is this just a distinction to make the stations want to become partnered? – Ken Mohnkern Aug 2 '18 at 12:40
  • Nope we do have extra benefits if user goes to partnered pumps . it is a major use case for us – Harshith Aug 2 '18 at 17:09
  • Use multiple subtle cues to make the partnered stations look more important, e.g. not just color but maybe also a little bigger, with a slight glow effect, maybe a star shape or something special, etc.
  • Don't put your logo on them. They already know they are using your service.
  • Is there a way you can use the partner logos instead of or on the gas pump icons? That would save you some visual clutter if you could eliminate the gray icon boxes. It would be better if you didn't have to see the partner logo unless you tapped on it for more details (hours, services, etc.) but if that's something legally required (e.g. in the contract you signed with the partners) then you may not be able to get around it.

I would suggest to have a more subtle filling color for the other icons.

Also the "extra information" (tooltip)

I would also display upon hovering or tapping on mobile devices.
