The MKGeodesicPolyline class represents a line shape that traces the shortest path along the surface of the Earth. As with regular polyline overlays, you specify a geodesic polyline using a set of end-to-end points where the first and last points are not connected to each other. When displayed on a two-dimensional map view, the line segment between any two points may appear curved.
