Introduction

In this article is shown how to draw a rectangle on Nokia Maps.

Prerequisites

Nokia Maps API supported web browser (basically any modern web browser)

Important about Maps credentials

Nokia provides several services options within the Maps API offering. The service is free to use, but if you complete the free registration process and obtain authentication and authorization credentials, your application will have priority access to the service and will thus avoid a potential performance penalty. Please read the Location API Business Models and Usage Restrictions page to decide which business model best fits your needs. Authentication requires unique Maps API credentials, namely an AppId and a token. You can get these credentials from the Nokia Developer API Registration page.

Implementation

API Definition of Rectangle:

    new nokia.maps.map.Rectangle (bounds, props)

Definition for the BoundingBox, used to form the rectangle:

new nokia.maps.geo.BoundingBox (topLeft, [bottomRight, [skipValidation]])

Example code

This is a full example with HTML and JavaScript.

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://api.maps.nokia.com/2.0.0/jsl.js" charset="utf-8">
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="map" style="width:100%; height:80%;"></div>
</body>
<script type="text/javascript">
 
var myBoundingBox = new nokia.maps.geo.BoundingBox ([53.1, 13.1], [43.1, 40.1]);
 
var map = new nokia.maps.map.Display(document.getElementById("map"), // new instance of Ovi Maps
{
components: [ new nokia.maps.map.component.Behavior(),
new nokia.maps.map.component.ZoomBar(),
new nokia.maps.map.component.Overview(),
new nokia.maps.map.component.TypeSelector(),
new nokia.maps.map.component.ScaleBar()],
'zoomLevel': 4,
'center':[53.1, 13.1]
});
 
map.set("baseMapType", map.NORMAL);
 
map.objects.add(
new nokia.maps.map.Rectangle(myBoundingBox,
{
precision: 36,
simplify: 16,
fillColor: "FFFFCC",
color: "E8FA75",
width: 8
}));
 
</script>
</body>
</html>
