# geocircle QML Basic Type

The `geocircle`

type is a geoshape that represents a circular geographic area. It is a direct representation of a QGeoCircle and is defined in terms of a coordinate which specifies the center of the circle and a qreal which specifies the radius of the circle in meters.

The circle is considered invalid if the center coordinate is invalid or if the radius is less than zero.

## Example Usage

Use properties of type variant to store a `geocircle`

. To create a `geocircle`

value, use the QtPositioning.circle() function:

import QtPositioning 5.2 Item { property variant region: QtPositioning.circle(QtPositioning.coordinate(-27.5, 153.1), 1000) }

When integrating with C++, note that any QGeoCircle value passed into QML from C++ is automatically converted into a `geocircle`

value, and vise-versa.

## Properties

### center

coordinate radius

This property holds the coordinate of the center of the geocircle.

### radius

real radius

This property holds the radius of the geocircle in meters.

The default value for the radius is -1 indicating an invalid geocircle area.
