Event objects

Whenever a class inheriting from Evented fires an event, a listener function will be called with an event argument, which is a plain object containing information about the event. For example:

map.on('click', function(ev) {
    alert(ev.latlng); // ev is an event object (MouseEvent in this case)
});
