Mapbox GL Geocoder Build Status

A geocoder control for mapbox-gl-js using the Mapbox Geocoding API. For a JavaScript geocoder without a graphical user interface see the Mapbox SDK for JS.


If you are supporting older browsers, you will need to use a polyfill. We recommend working with @babel/polyfill.

Usage with a module bundler

npm install --save @mapbox/mapbox-gl-geocoder
import MapboxGeocoder from '@mapbox/mapbox-gl-geocoder';
import '@mapbox/mapbox-gl-geocoder/dist/mapbox-gl-geocoder.css';
const geocoder = new MapboxGeocoder({
    accessToken: mapboxgl.accessToken,
    mapboxgl: mapboxgl

Using without a Map

It is possible to use the plugin without it being placed as a control on a mapbox-gl map. Keep in mind that the Mapbox Terms of Service require that POI search results be shown on a Mapbox map. If you don't need POIs, you can exclude them from your search results with the options.types parameter when constructing a new Geocoder.
