In a previous post of the series on Google maps we have seen how to add markers to the map to annotate specific points in it.
Sometimes, we would like to highlight an area on the map, rather than a single point. Using the Google Maps API it is also possible to highlight an area on the map defined by means of a single polygon or a set or polygons.
Finally, if we want to highlight a path, it is also possible to do it by means of a polyline.
In this post we will explain how to highlight areas and paths on the map with Google Maps API V3, with usage examples.
