To draw polylines on your map, do the following:

  2. Enter your polyline name/title in the field “Polyline Label”.
  3. Enter the unique name/key/ID of your polyline in the field “Polyline ID/Name”. Do not use the same name/key/ID for multiple polylines on the same map!
  4. Specify the polyline points type in the field “Polyline points type”, then, draw your polyline using one of these methods:
    • 1st Method: Draw a polyline by connecting multiple posts already available on the map:
        1. In this field, select the option “Post IDs”.
        2. In the field “Polyline Path (Post IDs)”, select the posts that will be used/connected to form your polyline. You should add at least 2 posts!

        1. In this field, select the option “Lat,Lng”.
        2. Open the group field “Polyline Path [Lat,Lng]” and enter or paste the polyline coordinates in the field/textarea “Polyline coordinates” by putting each line segment (LatLng) as [Lat,Lng] or [Lng,Lat] seperated by comma. For example, [45.5215,-1.5245],[41.2587,-1.2479],[40.1649,-1.9879]
