    So I have a LocationCollection object and would like to load directly into that a geospatial polygon such as:

    POLYGON ((-94.264725 45.562850,-94.264735 45.562850,-94.264735 45.562860,-94.264725 45.562860,-94.264725 45.562850))

    The question is: there is a method to do that automatically or will I have to write a function to parse the polygon string and insert points one by one into the LocationCollection object through the Add method?

    Hi Yan Moura,

    The LocationCollection class contains the static Parse method. You can use it to get the LocationCollection from a string.
    The sample code is below.
    LocationCollection collection = LocationCollection.Parse("-94.264725 45.562850,-94.264735 45.562850,-94.264735 45.562860,-94.264725 45.562860,-94.264725 45.562850", true);

    Best wishes,
