    Hello, I'm trying to use Kendo UI Map to display a radius with a circle. In other words, drop a pin/marker on a map, and show a circle marking a 100 mile/km radius around it. All I am able to find is documentation on adding a polygon shape to a shape layer, but nothing on circles. I tried using a bubble layer, but the bubble stays the same size when you zoom in, so I can't use that. Any thoughts on this would be very helpful.


    Thanks! -Jason

    Hello Jason,

    This can be achieved only via custom implementation as it is not supported out of the box.

    I can suggest checking the following example demonstrating similar implementation. The example is using line instead of a circle, but this is a custom visual and a circle can be drawn instead of this line: 

    I hope this will help to achieve the desired result.

    This is exactly what I was looking for. I was able to modify it to return the correct circle size for my radius

        type: "bubble",
        dataSource: {
            transport: {
                read: function (e) {
        locationField: "latlng",
        valueField: "radius",
        symbol: function (e) {
            var map = $("#map").data("kendoMap");
            // Bubble location
            var location = e.location;
            //Convert miles to km
            var KMs = Math.round((dropPinRadius * 1.6093) * 10) / 10
            // Find location x kms west center
            var l1 = location.destination(KMs * 1000, 270);
            // View (screen) coordinates for the locations
            var p1 = map.locationToView(l1);
            // Find radius in pixels
            var radius = - p1.x;
            // Create the circle
            var circleGeometry = new kendo.geometry.Circle(, radius);
            var circle = new kendo.drawing.Circle(circleGeometry, { stroke: { width: 0 } });
            circle.dataItem = e.dataItem;
            return circle;
