In this short article I will explain how to draw route line between two geographic locations i.e. coordinates (Latitude and Longitude points) on Google Maps V3.
The route line is drawn on the shortest route between the locations. This article also explains how to change the stroke color of the route line drawn between the coordinates on Google Maps V3.
Draw route line between two geographic locations on Google Maps
Below is a Google Map Implementation where I have marker array which consists of location information of three cities in India.
After that I have the usual Google Map initialization, where I have initialized the Google Map and also attached markers onto the Google Maps.
Finally I have the Google Maps Routing implementation, where I have first defined the Google Map Array to store the paths, the Google Maps Direction Service and a Poly line where I have defined the stroke color. Then a loop is executed over the Latitude and Longitude array and the route line is calculated and drawn between each combination of two geographic locations.
