So my big question here is how does the Google Maps API determine the "inner" versus the "outer" for a filled polygon?
Playing around with the polygon creator @ http://www.the-di-lab.com/polygon/ there seems to be a preference to:
- wrap the north pole;
- take the "smallest" polygon possible?
The big reason I want to know is to assist with answering the question "is point (x,y) in multipolygon z?"
