JavaScript

// This example adds a user-editable rectangle to the map.
function initMap() {
  var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), {
    center: { lat: 44.5452, lng: -78.5389 },
    zoom: 9
  });

  var bounds = {
    north: 44.599,
    south: 44.49,
    east: -78.443,
    west: -78.649
  };

  // Define a rectangle and set its editable property to true.
  var rectangle = new google.maps.Rectangle({
    bounds: bounds,
    editable: true
  });
  rectangle.setMap(map);
}

/* Always set the map height explicitly to define the size of the div
       * element that contains the map. */
#map {
  height: 100%;
}

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