Adding Area Markers

Similar to adding point markers, you can also add area markers to your locator map. Let's look at an example:

curl --request PUT \
     --url<ID>/data \
     --header 'Authorization: Bearer <YOUR_TOKEN_HERE>' \
     --header 'content-type: text/csv' \
     --data '{
  "markers": [
      "id": "m1",
      "type": "area",
      "visible": true,
      "exactShape": true,
      "fill": true,
      "stroke": true,
      "properties": {
        "fill": "#15607a",
        "fill-opacity": 0.2,
        "stroke": "#15607a",
        "stroke-width": 1,
        "stroke-opacity": 1,
        "stroke-dasharray": "100000",
        "pattern": "solid",
        "pattern-line-width": 2,
        "pattern-line-gap": 2
      "feature": {
        "type": "Feature",
        "properties": [],
        "geometry": {
          "type": "MultiPolygon",
          "coordinates": [ ... ]

The above example sets a dataset with an area marker. The marker payload contains the area geometry in the GeoJSON format in the feature property. Since it's a lot of data, it's truncated in the above example, but you can find the full example payload here.

Apart from the feature itself, there are multiple other properties you can use to control the display of your area:

typeStringDefines if the marker is a point, area or line marker.
visibleBooleanWhen true, the area marker is visible.
visibility.mobileBooleanWhen true, the marker is visible on mobile devices.
visibility.desktopBooleanWhen true, the marker is visible on desktop devices.
exactShapeBooleanWhen set to true, it will display the geometry in the exact shape uploaded, without applying any simplification.
fillBooleanControls whether the area is displayed with a fill color.
strokeBooleanControls whether the area is displayed with a visible outer stroke.


The resulting map will look like this:
