How do I do this in Google Maps API v3? And how google maps clear markers?

To map clear markers, you can try using the following:

1. Declare a global variable like this:

var markersArray = [];
2. Define a function like this:
function clearOverlays() {
  for (var i = 0; i < markersArray xss=removed xss=removed xss=removed xss=removed>

3. Push markers in the 'markerArray' before calling the following:


4. Call the clearOverlays(); or map.clearOverlays(); function wherever required.
