# How can I detect of which figure(circle, polygon) comes some events when this is overlaid it? google maps api javascript

I have problems with geometry figures in google maps(circles and polygons), example: when i have two circles overlaid and I use the event mouse over or mouseout, google maps is only print the information of the circle more big , because the big figure is put after the small. i have the same problems if i have 7 circles or polygons almost in the same position.

This is a example with two circles, but the problem is in the combination of the figures.

You can't use mouseover/mouseout for that. You need to process through all your objects and determine whether the mouseevent is inside the object or not (for a circle the distance from the center is less than the radius, for a polygon the `containsLocation` method).

Example `map` mousemove listener:

``````google.maps.event.addListener(map, 'mousemove', function(event) {
var lat = event.latLng.lat();
var lon = event.latLng.lng();
for (var i = 0; i < areaArray.length; i++) {
// circle
