Remove ploygon from Shapes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have plot the shape using geojson file. Now we want to remove any particular polygon. How can we achieve this. Anyone have sample code for this.

      var shapes =;


    Here is plotted shape and we wanted to remove the highlighted polygon.

    Waiting for reply.

  • Can what you are looking for a bit?   I can see the redbox is mainly covering polygon but it is overlapping multiple polygon.

    Are you looking to just remove the full polygon or remove the area covered by the red box?

    Did you want the ability to delete any polygon as needed or just to remove this single polygon once?

    Once we have more context we can provide the appropriate code sample.

  • One way to do that would be to use metadata property if you're using that, see here:
    You could loop through your shapes to check for matching name in metadata, and than remove it.

  • If you have a reference to the polygon you want to remove (i.e. you clicked it). You can simply pass the polygon into the map.entities.remove function and it will be removed from the map. For example:

    Microsoft.Maps.Events.addHandler(polygon, 'click', function (e) {
