 * Boilerplate map initialization code starts below:

//Step 1: initialize communication with the platform
// In your own code, replace variable window.apikey with your own apikey
var platform = new H.service.Platform({
  apikey: window.apikey
var defaultLayers = platform.createDefaultLayers();

//Step 2: initialize a map - this map is centered over Boston
var map = new H.Map(document.getElementById('map'),
  defaultLayers.vector.normal.map, {
  center: {lat: 50, lng: 22.8},
  zoom: 6,
  pixelRatio: window.devicePixelRatio || 1
// add a resize listener to make sure that the map occupies the whole container
window.addEventListener('resize', () => map.getViewPort().resize());

//Step 3: make the map interactive
// MapEvents enables the event system
// Behavior implements default interactions for pan/zoom (also on mobile touch environments)
var behavior = new H.mapevents.Behavior(new H.mapevents.MapEvents(map));

// Step 4: Create the default UI:
var ui = H.ui.UI.createDefault(map, defaultLayers, 'en-US');

// Step 5: Add resizable geo shapes

        <h1>Resizable circle</h1>
        <p>Display resizable geo circle on a map</p>
    <p>This example displays a circle object, which can be resized by dragging its outline.</p>
    <div id="map"></div>
    <p>There is a <code>H.map.Group</code> container, which contains resizable <code>H.map.Circle</code> and <code>H.map.Polyline</code>
       as circle's outline used for resizing. The outline is hidden by default and shown only when mouse position
      is over the group object, or is touched on touch device (<code>pointerenter</code> event). In order to listen to
      <code>drag</code> event, object's <code>draggable</code> property must be set to true.
      In order to have smoother resizing, the object's <code>volatility</code> property should be set to true.</p>
