Google Map React · npm version Build Status PRs Welcome

google-map-react is a component written over a small set of the Google Maps API. It allows you to render any React component on the Google Map. It is fully isomorphic and can render on a server. Additionally, it can render map components in the browser even if the Google Maps API is not loaded. It uses an internal, tweakable hover algorithm - every object on the map can be hovered.

It allows you to create interfaces like this example (You can scroll the table, zoom/move the map, hover/click on markers, and click on table rows)

Getting started

In the simple case you just need to add lat and lng props to any child of GoogleMapReact component.

See it in action at jsbin

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import GoogleMapReact from 'google-map-react';
const AnyReactComponent = ({ text }) => <div>{text}</div>;
class SimpleMap extends Component {
  static defaultProps = {
    center: {
      lat: 59.95,
      lng: 30.33
    zoom: 11
  render() {
    return (
      // Important! Always set the container height explicitly
      <div style={{ height: '100vh', width: '100%' }}>
          bootstrapURLKeys={{ key: /* YOUR KEY HERE */ }}
            text="My Marker"
export default SimpleMap;

My map doesn't appear!

  • Make sure the container element has width and height. The map will try to fill the parent container, but if the container has no size, the map will collapse to 0 width / height. This is not a requirement for google-map-react, its a requirement for google-maps in general.



npm install --save google-map-react


yarn add google-map-react


Works with your Components

Instead of the default Google Maps markers, balloons and other map components, you can render your cool animated react components on the map.

Isomorphic Rendering

It renders on the server. (Welcome search engines) (you can disable javascript in browser dev tools, and reload any example page to see how it works)

Component Positions Calculated Independently of Google Maps API

It renders components on the map before (and even without) the Google Maps API loaded.

Google Maps API Loads on Demand

There is no need to place a <script src= tag at top of page. The Google Maps API loads upon the first usage of the GoogleMapReact component.

Use Google Maps API

You can access to Google Maps map and maps objects by using onGoogleApiLoaded, in this case you will need to set yesIWantToUseGoogleMapApiInternals to true

const handleApiLoaded = (map, maps) => {
  // use map and maps objects
  bootstrapURLKeys={{ key: /* YOUR KEY HERE */ }}
  onGoogleApiLoaded={({ map, maps }) => handleApiLoaded(map, maps)}
    text="My Marker"

PST: Remember to set yesIWantToUseGoogleMapApiInternals to true.

Example here

Internal Hover Algorithm

Now every object on the map can be hovered (however, you can still use css hover selectors if you want). If you try zooming out here example, you will still be able to hover on almost every map marker.



You can find the documentation here:


To get a reloadable env, with map, clone this project and

npm install
npm run start
# open browser at localhost:4000 

Thank you

(Really big thanks to April Arcus for documentation fixes)

(thank you Dan Abramov for titles structure)

(great thanks to Vladimir Akimov he knows why)



Known Issues

  • Older browsers ( will need a ES6 Promise polyfill in order to work.
