Drawing new features

Our feature editor can now be used for loading data and modifying features. Next up, we'll add a Draw interaction to allow people to draw new features and add them to our source.

First, import the Draw interaction (in main.js):

import Draw from 'ol/interaction/Draw';

Now, create a draw interaction configured to draw polygons and add them to our vector source:

map.addInteraction(new Draw({
  type: 'Polygon',
  source: source

The type property of the draw interaction controls what type of geometries are drawn. The value can be any of the GeoJSON geometry types. Note that we could have also imported the GeometryType enum (import GeometryType from 'ol/geom/GeometryType';) and used GeometryType.POLYGON instead of the 'Polygon' string above.

With our draw interaction in place, we can now add new features to our vector source.
