An easy way to integrate Google Maps with Laravel

Latest Stable Version Total Downloads Build Status Scrutinizer Code Quality

For Laravel 4.x, check version 1.0.1

Think of Googlmapper as an easy way to integrate Google Maps with Laravel, providing a variety of helpers to speed up the utilisation of mapping. These include:

  • Mapper::map
  • Mapper::location
  • Mapper::stretview
  • Mapper::marker
  • Mapper::informationWindow
  • Mapper::polyline
  • Mapper::polygon
  • Mapper::rectangle
  • Mapper::circle
  • Mapper::render

Installation

Begin by installing this package through Composer. Edit your project's composer.json file to require cornford/googlmapper.

"require": {
    "cornford/googlmapper": "2.*"
}

Next, update Composer from the Terminal:

composer update

Once this operation completes, the next step is to add the service provider. Open app/config/app.php, and add a new item to the providers array.

'Cornford\Googlmapper\MapperServiceProvider',

The next step is to introduce the facade. Open app/config/app.php, and add a new item to the aliases array.

'Mapper'         => 'Cornford\Googlmapper\Facades\MapperFacade',

Finally we need to introduce the configuration files into your application.

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Cornford\\Googlmapper\\MapperServiceProvider" --tag=googlmapper

You also need to set your Google API Key into the GOOGLE_API_KEY environment variable. To obtain an API key for your project, visit the Google developers console.

That's it! You're all set to go.

Configuration

You can now configure Googlmapper in a few simple steps. Open app/config/packages/cornford/googlmapper/config.php and update the options as needed.

  • enabled - Enable Google Maps.
  • key - A Google Maps API key.
  • region - A region Google Maps should utilise, required in ISO 3166-1 code format, e.g. GB.
  • language - A language Google Maps should utilise, required in ISO 639-1 code format, e.g. en-gb.
  • async - Perform the loading and rendering of Googlmapper map asynchronously, e.g. false.
  • user - Use custom Google Maps for users logged into the Google service, e.g. false.
  • marker - Automatically add Google Maps marker for your maps initial location, e.g. true.
  • center - Automatically center Google Maps around the initial location, when false, Google Maps will automatically center the map, e.g. true.
  • locate - Automatically center Google Maps around the users current location, when false, Google Maps will automatically center the map, e.g. true.
  • zoom - Set the default zoom level for Google Maps, e.g. 8.
  • scrollWheelZoom - Set the default scroll wheel zoom Google Maps, e.g. true.
  • fullscreenControl - Set the default fullscreen control for Google Maps, e.g. true.
  • type - Set the default map type for Google Maps, e.g. ROADMAP, SATELLITE, HYBRID, TERRAIN.
  • ui - Show the Google Maps default UI options, e.g. true.
  • markers.icon - Set the default marker icon, e.g. img/icon.png.
  • markers.animation - Set the default marker animation, e.g. NONE, DROP, BOUNCE.
  • cluster - Set if map marker clusters should be used.
  • clusters.icon - Display custom images for clusters using icon path.
  • clusters.grid - The grid size of a cluster in pixels.
  • clusters.zoom - The maximum zoom level that a marker can be part of a cluster.
  • clusters.center - Whether the center of each cluster should be the average of all markers in the cluster.
  • clusters.size - The minimum number of markers to be in a cluster before the markers are hidden and a count is shown.

Usage

It's really as simple as using the Mapper class in any Controller / Model / File you see fit with:

Mapper::

This will give you access to

Example

Initialize the map in your controller MapController.php:

use Cornford\Googlmapper\Mapper;

public function index()
{
    Mapper::map(53.381128999999990000, -1.470085000000040000);

    return view('map')
}

Within in the view map.blade.php add following code to render the map:

<div style="width: 500px; height: 500px;">
    {!! Mapper::render() !!}
</div>

Map

The map method allows a map to be created, with latitude, longitude and optional parameters for options.

Mapper::map(53.381128999999990000, -1.470085000000040000);
Mapper::map(53.381128999999990000, -1.470085000000040000, ['zoom' => 15, 'center' => false, 'marker' => false, 'type' => 'HYBRID', 'overlay' => 'TRAFFIC']);
Mapper::map(53.381128999999990000, -1.470085000000040000, ['zoom' => 10, 'markers' => ['title' => 'My Location', 'animation' => 'DROP']]);
Mapper::map(53.381128999999990000, -1.470085000000040000, ['zoom' => 10, 'markers' => ['title' => 'My Location', 'animation' => 'DROP'], 'cluster' => false]);
Mapper::map(53.381128999999990000, -1.470085000000040000, ['zoom' => 10, 'markers' => ['title' => 'My Location', 'animation' => 'DROP'], 'clusters' => ['size' => 10, 'center' => true, 'zoom' => 20]]);
Map Events

Location

The location method allows a location to be searched for with a string, returning a Location object with its latitude and longitude.

Mapper::location('Sheffield');
Mapper::location('Sheffield')->map(['zoom' => 15, 'center' => false, 'marker' => false, 'type' => 'HYBRID', 'overlay' => 'TRAFFIC']);
