# Simple Polygon

This example creates a map with a simple polygon representing the Bermuda Triangle.

```// This example creates a simple polygon representing the Bermuda Triangle.

function initMap() {
var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map'), {
zoom: 5,
center: {lat: 24.886, lng: -70.268},
mapTypeId: 'terrain'
});

// Define the LatLng coordinates for the polygon's path.
var triangleCoords = [
{lat: 25.774, lng: -80.190},
{lat: 18.466, lng: -66.118},
{lat: 32.321, lng: -64.757},
{lat: 25.774, lng: -80.190}
];

// Construct the polygon.
paths: triangleCoords,
strokeColor: '#FF0000',
strokeOpacity: 0.8,
strokeWeight: 2,
fillColor: '#FF0000',
fillOpacity: 0.35
});
bermudaTriangle.setMap(map);
}```
`<div id="map"></div>`
```/* Always set the map height explicitly to define the size of the div
* element that contains the map. */
#map {
height: 100%;
}
/* Optional: Makes the sample page fill the window. */
html, body {
height: 100%;
margin: 0;
}```
```<!-- Replace the value of the key parameter with your own API key. -->
<script async defer
