Styled Map Selection

This example applies custom styles to a map by setting MapOptions.styles to a JSON object containing style declarations. Select an option to see some of the customizations you can apply with map styling. One of the options shows you how to hide features,in this case by removing business points of interest and public transport icons from the map.

Read the documentation.
