Polygon With Hole

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

This example creates a polygon with an inner hole, by defining an inner path wound in the opposite direction to the outer path. Note that you can also use the Data layer, which offers a simpler way of creating holes because it handles the order of the inner and outer paths for you.
