I want to to show an image when the mouse hovers on a marker or polygon, and on click show a popup with property attributes information from GeoJSON.

I can manage to show attributes on click but I am not able to show image on hover. However, the image can be viewed in console.log but it's not appearing on the screen.

Below is what I want it to look like.

  • I want to show an Image in mouse hover on each marker, polygon, and polyline. I find solution for popup window with more information. – Kuntal Parbat Sep 22 '16 at 11:27

I found a solution. Hope this will help someone who is searching for a similar question.

The code is:

    popupContent = document.createElement("img");
    popupContent.onload = function () {
    popupContent.src = "path/to/image";
    layer.bindPopup(popupContent, {
      maxWidth: "auto"


Copied content from http://jsfiddle.net/3v7hd2vx/32/

var map = L.map("map");

map.setView([48.85, 2.35], 12);

var marker, popupContent;

for (var i = 0; i < 1; i += 1) {
    marker = L.marker([48.85, 2.35]).addTo(map);
  popupContent = document.createElement("img");
  popupContent.onload = function () {
  popupContent.src = "https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/7/75/Stack_Exchange_logo_and_wordmark.svg/375px-Stack_Exchange_logo_and_wordmark.svg.png";
  //popupContent = '<img src="http://c4.staticflickr.com/1/691/21131215939_49601d06ef_b.jpg" />';
  marker.bindPopup(popupContent, {
    maxWidth: "auto"
