Add a pattern to a polygon

This example uses an image from an external URL as a repeating pattern that fills a polygon feature on the map.

It uses loadImage() to load the image from an external URL, then adds the loaded image to the style with addImage(). Then it uses addLayer() to create a new symbol layer that uses fill-pattern to fill a polygon with a pattern created by the repeating image.
