--- Polyline ---

    We have seen a number of examples for markers and info-windows. We can definitely move ahead now with other things in Google Maps API v3. Today we will have a look at polylines. Today's example will show a hard-coded polyline, but later on we will have a look at creating polylines on the fly. We will also create polygons and calculate the geographic area and more but at a later stage!

    Let us now first have a look at today's polyline code. You just need to copy and paste the code that follows into a text file and save it as .html. Double-click on the file and you will be able to see the map in action.


    The output of the above code looks as seen in the result section above! The code is very simple and does not require any special explanation I guess! We have made use of an array to store the co-ordinates that form the polyline on the map! Rest is mostly as usual!

    Please feel free to drop me a line about the code or the blog in general! You can also contact me through mail!
