Polygon Arrays

This example creates a map with a simple polygon which displays information in response to a click event.

Read the documentation.

TypeScript

// When the user clicks on the polygon an info window opens, showing
// information about the polygon's coordinates.

CSS

/* 
 * Always set the map height explicitly to define the size of the div element

#map {
  height: 100%;

/* 
 * Optional: Makes the sample page fill the window. 
 */
