Calcite Maps

A theme for Bootstrap for designing, styling and creating modern map apps.

This project contains CSS classes that can be used with Bootstrap to quickly build responsive map apps with a great UI and UX. You can create a variety of custom apps with different themes, layouts and colors simply by applying the calcite-maps-xxx classes to existing Bootstrap HTML elements. A number of Bootstrap components have been extended making it easy to add, remove and synchronize navbar items, dropdown menus and panels. The framework is also designed to work well with mapping components (zoom, home, attribution...) and provides additional features such as collapsible panels and "Full Map" to hide the UI for full map viewing. The Sass build creates a calcite-maps-xxx.css library as well as a custom calcite-maps-bootstrap.css build of Bootstrap - which is optional to use. The framework is designed to work with the ArcGIS JS 3.x, 4.x and Esri-Leaflet API.

To get started, typically you: 1) Build a Bootstrap HTML page, 2) Add references to Bootstrap and Calcite Maps, and 3) Apply Calcite Maps classes to the elements to style the app with the layout and colors desired.

To see what types of apps you can build check out the live samples here.


What's included

  • 14 different top and bottom layouts
  • Small (40px), medium (50px) and large (65px) navbar sizes
  • Dark and light color themes
  • Calcite colors
  • Extended navbar, dropdown menu and collapsible panels
  • Dropdown menu drawer option
  • Full map view
  • Custom Sass build for Bootstrap and Calcite Maps
  • Support for ArcGIS JS 3.x, ArcGIS JS 4.x and Esri Leaflet
  • Dojo and jQuery support

NOTE: The framework is compatible with standard or custom builds of Bootstrap 3.x.

Getting started

Here's a few ways to get started:

  1. Explore the styles - Use the Style Explorer to explore the different colors, styles and layouts. When you find a design you like, inspect the HTML and apply the styles (CSS classes) to your app.

  2. Start with a sample - Create your own app from one of the samples. Typically you reference Bootstrap, Calcite Maps and the appropriate JS library. See example below.

  3. Create a local build - Fork and clone the repo to create a local build. The default build includes the Bootstrap components for the framework (scaffolding, navbar, panels...), but you can customize further by overriding variables, adding or removing style files, or adding/removing other Bootstrap components.

Run the commands below:

  • Run npm install (node_modules/bootstrap)
  • Run bower install (bower_components/dojo-bootstrap - optional, it's local)
  • Run grunt (build out project to ./dist/**)

NOTE: To start customizing, check out the gruntfile.js, build.scss and _variables.scss files. You can also create a custom (smaller) build of bootstrap with build-calicte-maps-bootstrap.scss by adding/removing components.


This example references Bootstrap, Calcite Maps, ArcGIS and the appropriate JS files. It has a top layout, with the default theme, a drop-down menu with a basemap panel. It also synchronizes the popup and Bootstrap panels. Here are the main calcite-maps classes used:

<body class="calcite-maps calcite-nav-top">

  <nav class="navbar calcite-navbar navbar-fixed-top calcite-text-light calcite-bg-dark">

    <div class="dropdown calcite-dropdown calcite-text-dark calcite-bg-light" role="presentation">
