How to add apple map marker via query string in the url?

I want add map marker (like google map) in the map app when I use a url link to open the map on the iPhone from my app.

like this :

<a href="http://maps.apple.com?ll=latitude,longtitude">


I can open the apple map and the map center is on the location I want, but how to add a marker at the same time? I am not sure how query string I can add on the url

I have already read the doc below

https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/featuredarticles/iPhoneURLScheme_Reference/MapLinks/MapLinks.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40007899-CH5-SW1

Thanks in advance!

Answer

If you wanna use internal map app (Apple Map), you should change your protocol for maps.

Like:

maps://maps.apple.com/?q={latitude},{longitude}

Now http://maps.apple.com query will redirect to google map :O
