Polygons and Geotools.


We are making firsts steps with vector data in Wikimapia. From now it is possible to add polygon info for places (only for registered users at this moment).

We cannot show many polygons now (browsers are too slow with them), later we will find a better way to present polygons. For now we just highlight polygon for mouseovered place.

Example: Moscow Kremlin

For improvements, ideas, bugs and comments write us to, or duscuss it at Wikipedia.


We added measuring of distance and area, we hope you would find them useful. Look in main Wikimapia menu.
