Build Google maps polylines and polygons from templates
Click the Show button to see the templates available.
This application provides templates (polylines/paths) for country coastlines, islands and lakes for google maps. Coordinates for almost all coastlines of the world are available.
If a coastline is part of a polyline or polygon you want to create, choose a template from the long list provided here. Click on the map to add your own points. All points may be edited. Points can be removed with a click while editing. Style management is available with the 'Style options' button. Polygon colour, line colour, line thicknes, opacity may be changed.
