Marker labels allow you to add dynamic text to markers.

This example displays the active incident count at each location.

//get the instances url so we can link back to it
var uri = gs.getProperty("glide.servlet.uri");
//create an aggregate query on the incident table
var count = new GlideAggregate('incident');
//set condition for active incidents
count.addQuery('active', 'true');
//set aggregate field to location to get count by location
count.addAggregate('COUNT', 'location');
//execute the query
//loop through the results
while ( {
 //get the current record's location
 var loc = count.location;
 //get the count of incidents for this location
 var locCount = count.getAggregate('COUNT', 'location');
 //only display location is there are active incidents
 if (locCount > 0) {
 //create new new map item for this location
 var item = map.addItem(count);
 //set lat/long from the location record
 item.latitude = loc.latitude;
 item.longitude = loc.longitude; 
 //create a marker label with the count
 item.marker_label = locCount;
 //define label offset for proper position
 item.label_offset_left = -4;
 item.label_offset_top = -20;
 //option to define table and record for label hyperlink
 //setting table and sys_id will override the use of html parameter

 //item.sys_id = loc;
 //build the link to the list of incidents for the location
 var link = 'href=' + uri + '^location%3D' + loc;
 //build the html value to be displayed when you click the map icon
 item.html='<a ' + link + '>' + loc.getDisplayValue() + ' (' + locCount + ')</a>';
 //link to the icon image

 //set the size of the icon based on the number of active incidents
