3) Select a Parent Location based on your Specific Location.

5) Select a Feature Type (Point, Line, or Polygon.)

If there is a marker attached to feature then it is used (over-rides all)
If not then it checks if there's a marker for it's feature_class
If so, it uses it
If not, then it falls back to the default marker
