Due to the rapid changes being made in the React Native ecosystem, we are not officially going to support this module on anything but the latest version of React Native. With that said, we will do our best to stay compatible with older versions as much that is practical, and the peer dependency of this requirement is set to

"react-native": "*"
explicitly for this reason. If you are using an older version of React Native with this module though, some features may be buggy.

General Usage

import MapView from 'react-native-maps';


var MapView = require('react-native-maps');

This MapView component is built so that features on the map (such as Markers, Polygons, etc.) are specified as children of the MapView itself. This provides an intuitive and react-like API for declaratively controlling features on the map.

Rendering a Map with an initial region



Using a MapView while controlling the region as state

getInitialState() {
  return {
    region: {
      latitude: 37.78825,
      longitude: -122.4324,
      latitudeDelta: 0.0922,
      longitudeDelta: 0.0421,

onRegionChange(region) { this.setState({ region }); }

render() { return ( ); }

Rendering a list of markers on a map

import { Marker } from 'react-native-maps';

  {, index) => (

Rendering a Marker with a custom image

  1. You need to generate an
    image with various resolution (lets call them
    ) - for more infromation go to Android, iOS
  2. put all images in Android drawables and iOS assets dir
  3. Now you can use the following code:

Note: You can also pass the image binary data like

, but this will not scale good with the different screen sizes.

Rendering a Marker with a custom view

Note: This has performance implications, if you wish for a simpler solution go with a custom image (save your self the head ache)


Rendering a custom Marker with a custom Callout

import { Callout } from 'react-native-maps';


Draggable Markers

   this.setState({ x: e.nativeEvent.coordinate })}

Using a custom Tile Overlay

Tile Overlay using tile server

import { UrlTile } from 'react-native-maps';


For Android: add the following line in your AndroidManifest.xml


For IOS: configure App Transport Security in your app

Tile Overlay using local tiles

Tiles can be stored locally within device using xyz tiling scheme and displayed as tile overlay as well. This is usefull especially for offline map usage when tiles are available for selected map region within device storage.

import { LocalTile } from 'react-native-maps';


For Android: LocalTile is still just overlay over original map tiles. It means that if device is online, underlying tiles will be still downloaded. If original tiles download/display is not desirable set mapType to 'none'. For example: ``` <MapView mapType={Platform.OS == "android" ? "none" : "standard"}

See OSM Wiki for how to download tiles for offline usage.

Overlaying other components on the map

Place components that you wish to overlay

underneath the
closing tag. Absolutely position these elements.
render() {
  return (

Customizing the map style

Create the json object, or download a generated one from the google style generator.

// The generated json object
mapStyle = [ ... ]

render() { return ( ); }

For iOS, in addition to providing the

you will need to do the following
import MapView, { PROVIDER_GOOGLE } from 'react-native-maps'

// ...

Then add the AirGoogleMaps directory:

MapView Events


 component and its child components have several events that you can subscribe to.
This example displays some of them in a log as a demonstration.

Tracking Region / Location

Programmatically Changing Region

One can change the mapview's position using refs and component methods, or by passing in an updated

prop. The component methods will allow one to animate to a given position like the native API could.

Changing the style of the map

Arbitrary React Views as Markers

Using the MapView with the Animated API


 component can be made to work with the Animated API, having the entire 
prop be declared as an animated value. This allows one to animate the zoom and position of the MapView along with other gestures, giving a nice feel.

Further, Marker views can use the animated API to enhance the effect.

Issue: Since android needs to render its marker views as a bitmap, the animations APIs may not be compatible with the Marker views. Not sure if this can be worked around yet or not.

Markers' coordinates can also be animated, as shown in this example:

Polygon Creator

Other Overlays

So far,

, and 
 are available to pass in as children to the

Gradient Polylines (iOS MapKit only)

Gradient polylines can be created using the

prop of the

Default Markers

Default markers will be rendered unless a custom marker is specified. One can optionally adjust the color of the default marker by using the


Custom Callouts

Callouts to markers can be completely arbitrary react views, similar to markers. As a result, they can be interacted with like any other view.

Additionally, you can fall back to the standard behavior of just having a title/description through the


Custom callout views can be the entire tooltip bubble, or just the content inside of the system default bubble.

To handle press on specific subview of callout use

. See

Image-based Markers

Markers can be customized by just using images, and specified using the


Draggable Markers

Markers are draggable, and emit continuous drag events to update other UI during drags.

Lite Mode ( Android )

Enable lite mode on Android with

prop. Ideal when having multiple maps in a View or ScrollView.

On Poi Click (Google Maps Only)

Poi are clickable, you can catch the event to get its information (usually to get the full detail from Google Place using the placeId).

Animated Region

The MapView can accept an

value as its
prop. This allows you to utilize the Animated API to control the map's center and zoom.
import MapView, { AnimatedRegion, Animated } from 'react-native-maps';

getInitialState() { return { region: new AnimatedRegion({ latitude: LATITUDE, longitude: LONGITUDE, latitudeDelta: LATITUDE_DELTA, longitudeDelta: LONGITUDE_DELTA, }), }; }

onRegionChange(region) { this.state.region.setValue(region); }

render() { return ( ); }

Animated Marker Position

Markers can also accept an

value as a coordinate.
import Mapview, { AnimatedRegion, MarkerAnimated } from 'react-native-maps';

getInitialState() { return { coordinate: new AnimatedRegion({ latitude: LATITUDE, longitude: LONGITUDE, }), }; }

componentWillReceiveProps(nextProps) { const duration = 500

if (this.props.coordinate !== nextProps.coordinate) { if (Platform.OS === 'android') { if (this.marker) { this.marker.animateMarkerToCoordinate( nextProps.coordinate, duration ); } } else { this.state.coordinate.timing({ ...nextProps.coordinate, duration }).start(); } } }

render() { return ( { this.marker = marker }} coordinate={this.state.coordinate} /> ); }

Take Snapshot of map

import MapView, { Marker } from 'react-native-maps';

getInitialState() { return { coordinate: { latitude: LATITUDE, longitude: LONGITUDE, }, }; }

takeSnapshot () { // 'takeSnapshot' takes a config object with the // following options const snapshot ={ width: 300, // optional, when omitted the view-width is used height: 300, // optional, when omitted the view-height is used region: {..}, // iOS only, optional region to render format: 'png', // image formats: 'png', 'jpg' (default: 'png') quality: 0.8, // image quality: 0..1 (only relevant for jpg, default: 1) result: 'file' // result types: 'file', 'base64' (default: 'file') }); snapshot.then((uri) => { this.setState({ mapSnapshot: uri }); }); }

render() { return ( { = map }}> Take Snapshot ); }

Zoom to Specified Markers

Pass an array of marker identifiers to have the map re-focus.

Zoom to Specified Coordinates

Pass an array of coordinates to focus a map region on said coordinates.


My map is blank

  • Make sure that you have properly installed react-native-maps.
  • Check in the logs if there is more informations about the issue.
  • Try setting the style of the MapView to an absolute position with top, left, right and bottom values set.
  • Make sure you have enabled Google Maps API in Google developer console
const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  map: {

Inputs don't focus

  • When inputs don't focus or elements don't respond to tap, look at the order of the view hierarchy, sometimes the issue could be due to ordering of rendered components, prefer putting MapView as the first component.





Children Components Not Re-Rendering

Components that aren't declared by this library (Ex: Markers, Polyline) must not be children of the MapView component due to MapView's unique rendering methodology. Have your custom components / views outside the MapView component and position absolute to ensure they only re-render as needed. Example: Bad:
