Flutter Mapbox GL Native #

Please note that this project is community driven and is not an official Mapbox product. We welcome feedback and contributions.

This Flutter plugin for mapbox-gl-native enables embedded interactive and customizable vector maps inside a Flutter widget by embedding Android and iOS views.


Install #

This project is available on pub.dartlang, follow the instructions to integrate a package into your flutter application.

Running example app #

  • Install Flutter and validate its installation with flutter doctor
  • Clone this repository with git clone
  • Run the app with cd flutter_mapbox/example && flutter run

Mapbox Access Token

This project uses Mapbox vector tiles, which requires a Mapbox account and a Mapbox access token. Obtain a free access token on your Mapbox account page.


Add Mapbox read token value in the application manifest android/app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml:

  <application ...
    <meta-data android:name="com.mapbox.token" android:value="YOUR_TOKEN_HERE" />


Add these lines to your Info.plist


Supported API #

User Location

Offline Sideloading #

Support for offline maps is available by "side loading" the required map tiles and including them in your assets folder.

  • Create your tiles package by following the guide available here.

  • Place the tiles.db file generated in step one in your assets directory and add a reference to it in your pubspec.yml file.

     - assets/cache.db
  • Call installOfflineMapTiles when your application starts to copy your tiles into the location where Mapbox can access them. NOTE: This method should be called before the Map widget is loaded to prevent collisions when copying the files into place.
    try {
      await installOfflineMapTiles(join("assets", "cache.db"));
    } catch (err) {
