Simple Usage #

Creating a basic OSMFlutter :

        trackMyPosition: false,
        initZoom: 12,
        minZoomLevel: 8,
        maxZoomLevel: 14,
        stepZoom: 1.0,
        userLocationMarker: UserLocationMaker(
            personMarker: MarkerIcon(
                icon: Icon(
                    color: Colors.red,
                    size: 48,
            directionArrowMarker: MarkerIcon(
                icon: Icon(
                    size: 48,
         roadConfiguration: RoadConfiguration(
                startIcon: MarkerIcon(
                  icon: Icon(
                    size: 64,
                    color: Colors.brown,
                roadColor: Colors.yellowAccent,
        markerOption: MarkerOption(
            defaultMarker: MarkerIcon(
                icon: Icon(
                  color: Colors.blue,
                  size: 56,

MapController #

Declare MapController to control OSM map

1) Initialisation

 MapController controller = MapController(
                            initMapWithUserPosition: false,
                            initPosition: GeoPoint(latitude: 47.4358055, longitude: 8.4737324),
                            areaLimit: BoundingBox( east: 10.4922941, north: 47.8084648, south: 45.817995, west: 5.9559113,),

2) Dispose


3) Properties of MapController

initMapWithUserPosition(bool) initialize map with user position (default:true
initPosition(GeoPoint) if it isn't null, the map will be pointed at this position
areaLimit(Bounding) set area limit of the map (default BoundingBox.world())
customLayer(CustomTile) set customer layer using different osm server , this attribute used only with named constructor customLayer

3.1) Custom Layers with MapController

  • To change the tile source in OSMFlutter, you should used our named constructor customLayer, see the example below

controller = MapController.customLayer(
      initMapWithUserPosition: false,
      initPosition: GeoPoint(
        latitude: 47.4358055,
        longitude: 8.4737324,
      customTile: CustomTile(
        sourceName: "opentopomap",
        tileExtension: ".png",
        minZoomLevel: 2,
        maxZoomLevel: 19,
        urlsServers: [
            url: "https://tile.opentopomap.org/",
            subdomains: [],
        tileSize: 256,

  • also,you can use our predefined custom tiles like
    • cyclOSMLayer constructor for cycling tiles
    • publicTransportationLayer constructor for transport tiles ,it's public osm server

for more example see our example in home_example.dart

4) Set map on user current location

 await controller.currentLocation();

5) Zoom IN

 await controller.setZoom(stepZoom: 2);
 // or 
 await controller.zoomIn();

5.1) Zoom Out

 await controller.setZoom(stepZoom: -2);
 // or 
 await controller.zoomOut();

5.2) change zoom level

zoomLevel should be between minZoomLevel and maxZoomLevel

 await controller.setZoom(zoomLevel: 8);

5.3) zoom to specific bounding box

await controller.zoomToBoundingBox(BoundingBox(),paddingInPixel:0)
Note :
  • For the box attribute ,If you don't have bounding box,you can use list of geopoint like this BoundingBox.fromGeoPoints

6) get current zoom level b>

await controller.getZoom();

7) BoundingBox

set bounding box in the map

await controller.limitAreaMap(BoundingBox( east: 10.4922941, north: 47.8084648, south: 45.817995, west: 5.9559113,));

remove bounding box in the map

await controller.removeLimitAreaMap();

8) Track user current position

for iOS,you should add those line in your info.plist file

	<string>any text you want</string>
	<string>any text you want</string>

from version 0.40.0 we can call only enableTracking will animate to user location without need to call currentLocation

 await controller.enableTracking();

9) Disable tracking user position

 await controller.disabledTracking();

10) update the location

this method will create marker on that specific position

 await controller.changeLocation(GeoPoint(latitude: 47.35387, longitude: 8.43609));

Change the location without create marker

 await controller.goToLocation(GeoPoint(latitude: 47.35387, longitude: 8.43609));

11) recuperation current position

 GeoPoint geoPoint = await controller.myLocation();

12) get center map b>

GeoPoint centerMap = await controller.centerMap;

12.1) get geoPoint in the map b>

  • recuperate geoPoint of marker add it by user except static points
List<GeoPoint> geoPoints = await controller.geopoints;

13) get bounding box map b>

BoundingBox bounds = await controller.bounds;

14) select/create new position

  • we have 2 way to select location in map

14.1 Manual selection (deprecated)

a) select without change default marker

 GeoPoint geoPoint = await controller.selectPosition();

b) select position with dynamic marker

  • Flutter widget
 GeoPoint geoPoint = await controller.selectPosition(
     icon: MarkerIcon(
                      icon: Icon(
                        color: Colors.amber,
                        size: 48,
  • image from network
  GeoPoint geoPoint = await controller.selectPosition(  
          imageURL: "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/PokeAPI/sprites/master/sprites/pokemon/back/1.png"

c) select using listener from controller directly

  • for more example see home_example.dart c.1) single tap listener
controller.listenerMapSingleTapping.addListener(() {
      if (controller.listenerMapSingleTapping.value != null) {
        /// put you logic here

c.2) long tap listener

controller.listenerMapLongTapping.addListener(() {
      if (controller.listenerMapLongTapping.value != null) {
        /// put you logic here

c.3) region change listener

controller.listenerRegionIsChanging.addListener(() {
      if (controller.listenerRegionIsChanging.value != null) {
        /// put you logic here

14.2 Assisted selection (for more details see example)

 /// To Start assisted Selection
 await controller.advancedPositionPicker();
 /// To get location desired
  GeoPoint p = await controller.getCurrentPositionAdvancedPositionPicker();
  /// To get location desired and close picker
 GeoPoint p = await controller.selectAdvancedPositionPicker();
 /// To cancel assisted Selection
 await controller.cancelAdvancedPositionPicker();

15) Create Marker Programmatically

you can change marker icon by using attribute markerIcon

await controller.addMarker(GeoPoint,markerIcon:MarkerIcon,angle:pi/3);

15.1) Change Icon Marker

You can change marker icon by using attribute markerIcon of existing Marker The GeoPoint/Marker should be exist

await controller.setMarkerIcon(GeoPoint,MarkerIcon);

15.2) Remove marker

 await controller.removeMarker(geoPoint);
  • PS : static position cannot be removed by this method

16) Draw road,recuperate distance in km and duration in sec

you can add an middle position to pass your route through them change configuration of the road in runtime zoom into the region of the road change the type of the road that user want to use

 RoadInfo roadInfo = await controller.drawRoad( 
   GeoPoint(latitude: 47.35387, longitude: 8.43609),
   GeoPoint(latitude: 47.4371, longitude: 8.6136),
   roadType: RoadType.car,
   intersectPoint : [ GeoPoint(latitude: 47.4361, longitude: 8.6156), GeoPoint(latitude: 47.4481, longitude: 8.6266)]
   roadOption: RoadOption(
       roadWidth: 10,
       roadColor: Colors.blue,
       showMarkerOfPOI: false,
       zoomInto: true,

properties of RoadOption #

roadColor(Color?) change the default color of the route in runtime
roadWidth(int?) change the road width
showMarkerOfPOI(bool) change the visibility of the markers of the POI (default:false)
zoomInto(bool) change zoom level to make the all the road visible (default:true)

16.b) draw road manually

await controller.drawRoadManually(
        interestPointIcon: MarkerIcon(
          icon: Icon(
            color: Colors.black,
        interestPoints: [waysPoint[3],waysPoint[6]],
        zoomInto: true

17) Delete last road

 await controller.removeLastRoad();

18) draw multiple roads

final configs = [
        startPoint: GeoPoint(
          latitude: 47.4834379430,
          longitude: 8.4638911095,
        destinationPoint: GeoPoint(
          latitude: 47.4046149269,
          longitude: 8.5046595453,
          startPoint: GeoPoint(
            latitude: 47.4814981476,
            longitude: 8.5244329867,
          destinationPoint: GeoPoint(
            latitude: 47.3982152237,
            longitude: 8.4129691189,
          roadOptionConfiguration: MultiRoadOption(
            roadColor: Colors.orange,
        startPoint: GeoPoint(
          latitude: 47.4519015578,
          longitude: 8.4371175094,
        destinationPoint: GeoPoint(
          latitude: 47.4321999727,
          longitude: 8.5147623089,
    await controller.drawMultipleRoad(
      commonRoadOption: MultiRoadOption(
        roadColor: Colors.red,

19) delete all roads

 await controller.clearAllRoads();

20) Change static GeoPoint position

add new staticPoints with empty list of geoPoints (notice: if you add static point without marker,they will get default maker used by plugin)

change their position over time

change orientation of the static GeoPoint with GeoPointWithOrientation

 await controller.setStaticPosition(List<GeoPoint> geoPoints,String id );

21) Change/Add Marker old/new static GeoPoint position

add marker of new static point

change their marker of existing static geoPoint over time

 await controller.setMarkerOfStaticPoint(String id,MarkerIcon markerIcon );

22) change orientation of the map

 await controller.rotateMapCamera(degree);

23) Draw Shape in the map

  • Circle
 /// to draw
 await controller.drawCircle(CircleOSM(
              key: "circle0",
              centerPoint: GeoPoint(latitude: 47.4333594, longitude: 8.4680184),
              radius: 1200.0,
              color: Colors.red,
              strokeWidth: 0.3,
 /// to remove Circle using Key
 await controller.removeCircle("circle0");

 /// to remove All Circle in the map 
 await controller.removeAllCircle();

  • Rect
 /// to draw
 await controller.drawRect(RectOSM(
              key: "rect",
              centerPoint: GeoPoint(latitude: 47.4333594, longitude: 8.4680184),
              distance: 1200.0,
              color: Colors.red,
              strokeWidth: 0.3,
 /// to remove Rect using Key
 await controller.removeRect("rect");

 /// to remove All Rect in the map 
 await controller.removeAllRect();

  • remove all shapes in the map
 await controller.removeAllShapes();

Interfaces: #

  • OSMMixinObserver :

contain listener methods to get event from native map view like when mapIsReady,mapRestored

you should add ths line controller.addObserver(this); in initState

override mapIsReady to implement your own logic after initialisation of the map

mapIsReady will replace listenerMapIsReady

mapIsReady(callback) should be override this method, to get notified when map is ready to go or not,
mapRestored(callback) should be override this method, to get notified when map is restored you can also add you bakcup

** example

class YourOwnStateWidget extends State<YourWidget> with OSMMixinObserver {

  void initState() {
    Future<void> mapIsReady(bool isReady) async {
      if (isReady) {
        /// put you logic
  Future<void> mapRestored() async {
    /// TODO

OSMFlutter #

mapIsLoading(Widget) show custom widget when the map finish initialization
trackMyPositionenable tracking user position.
showZoomControllershow default zoom controller.
userLocationMarkerchange user marker or direction marker icon in tracking location
markerOptionconfigure marker of osm map
stepZoomset step zoom to use in zoomIn()/zoomOut() (default 1)
initZoomset init zoom level in the map (default 10)
maxZoomLevelset maximum zoom level in the map (2 <= x <= 19)
minZoomLevelset minimum zoom level in the map (2 <= x <= 19 )
roadConfiguration(RoadConfiguration) set color and start/end/middle markers in road
staticPointsList of Markers you want to show always ,should every marker have unique id
onGeoPointClicked(callback) listener triggered when marker is clicked ,return current geoPoint of the marker
onLocationChanged(callback) it is fired when you activate tracking and user position has been changed
onMapIsReady(callback) listener trigger to get map is initialized or not
showDefaultInfoWindow(bool) enable/disable default infoWindow of marker (default = false)
isPicker(bool) enable advanced picker from init of the map (default = false)
showContributorBadgeForOSM(bool) enable to show copyright widget of osm in the map
androidHotReloadSupport(bool) enable to restart osm map in android to support hotReload, default: false

Custom Controller #

To create your own MapController to need to extends from BaseMapController, if you want to make a custom initialization to need to call init() and put your code after super.init()

  • example
class CustomMapController extends BaseMapController {

  void dispose() {
    /// TODO put you logic here

  void init() {
    /// TODO put you logic here


1) Calculate distance between 2 geoPoint position

 double distanceEnMetres = await distance2point(GeoPoint(longitude: 36.84612143139903,latitude: 11.099388684927824,),
        GeoPoint( longitude: 36.8388023164018, latitude: 11.096959785428027, ),);

2) Get search Suggestion of text

you should know that i'm using public api, don't make lot of request

    List<SearchInfo> suggestions = await addressSuggestion("address");

show dialog picker #

simple dialog location picker to selected user location

GeoPoint p = await showSimplePickerLocation(
                      context: context,
                      isDismissible: true,
                      title: "Title dialog",
                      textConfirmPicker: "pick",
                      initCurrentUserPosition: true,

CustomLocationPicker #

customizable widget to build search location

you should use PickerMapController as controller for the widget see example : search widget

Properties of CustomLocationPicker

controller(PickerMapController) controller of the widget
appBarPicker(AppBar) appbar for the widget
topWidgetPicker(Widget?) widget will be show on top of osm map,for example to show address suggestion
bottomWidgetPicker(Widget?) widget will be show at bottom of screen for example to show more details about selected location or more action


For now the map working for android,iOS , web will be available soon

If you get ssl certfiction exception,use can use http by following instruction below

If you want to use http in Android PIE or above :

  • enable useSecureURL and add android:usesCleartextTraffic="true" in your manifest like example below :

    • <application ... android:usesCleartextTraffic="true">

if you faced build error in fresh project you need to follow those instruction #40

1) remove flutter_osm_plugin from pubspec, after that pub get
2) open android module in android studio ( right click in name of project -> flutter-> open android module in android studio)
3) update gradle version to 4.1.1 ( IDE will show popup to make update)
4) update kotlin version to 1.4.21 & re-build the project
5) re-add flutter_osm_plugin in pubspec , pub get ( or flutter clean & pub get )

Before you publish your application using this library, you should take care about copyright of openStreetMap Data, that's why i add CopyrightOSMWidget see example and this issue #101
