Polygon Auto-Completion

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

This example creates a map with a simple polygon, to demonstrate the autoclose behavior for polygons. Note that only three coordinates are defined. There's no need to specify the final coordinates to complete the polygon, because the Google Maps JavaScript API will automatically draw the closing side.
