Extends FeatureGroup to allow creating multi-polygons (single layer that consists of several polygons that share styling/popup).


Factory Description
L.multiPolygon( <LatLng[][]> latlngs, <Polyline options> options? ) Instantiates a multi-polygon object given an array of latlngs arrays (one for each individual polygon) and optionally an options object (the same as for MultiPolyline).


MultiPolygons accept all Polyline methods but have different behavior around their coordinate contents since they can contain multiple polygon features:

Method Returns Description
setLatLngs( <LatLng[][]> latlngs ) this Replace all polygons and their paths with the given array of arrays of geographical points.
getLatLngs() <LatLng[][]> latlngs Returns an array of arrays of geographical points in each polygon.
openPopup() this Opens the popup previously bound by bindPopup.
toGeoJSON() Object Returns a GeoJSON representation of the multipolygon (GeoJSON MultiPolygon Feature).
