Google Maps Integration with Location

by Abdul Rawoof A R Updated: Jan 24, 2023

Google maps is a powerful and complex application. To integrate it into the React app “google-map-react” package is used.


Any React component on Google Maps can be rendered by this package, which is a component written atop a tiny portion of the Google Maps API. It is actively maintained and simple enough to use. It is entirely isomorphic. Even without the Google Maps API being loaded, it can render map components in the browser. Every item on the map may be hovered using an internal, adjustable hover algorithm.  Since google-map-react allows the user to render any React component on the map, a specific component can be designed that shows a pin icon and text. One can use Iconify library (a collection of free SVG icons) for the icons.  One should be aware of a few prerequisites for the purpose:  

  • JavaScript ES6  
  • Searching for Location in Google Map  
  • React.js library  

Here is an example of how you could integrate google maps with location using ReactJs:

Code

In this solution we're using React library.

Instructions

Follow the steps carefully to get the output easily.

  1. Install the Node.js and React on your IDE(preferable Visual Studio Code).
  2. Create React Application using npx create-react-app foldername.
  3. cd foldername.
  4. Open the folder in IDE.
  5. Copy the code using "copy" button above and paste it in app.js file(remove the earlier code from app.js).
  6. Open the terminal from IDE.
  7. npm start to run the file.


Note: Create your own API KEY and paste it in the place of 'YOUR_API_KEY' in the code snippet.

I hope you found this useful. I have added the link to dependent libraries, version information in the following sections.


I found this code snippet by searching for "how to embed an exact place in google map in Reactjs" in kandi. You can try any such use case!

Environment Tested

I tested this solution in the following versions. Be mindful of changes when working with other versions.

  1. The solution is created in Visual Studio Code 1.73.1.
  2. The solution is tested on node v18.12.1 and npm v8.19.2.
  3. React version-18.2.0.


Using this solution, we are able to embed an place in google map with simple steps. This process also facilities an easy way to use, hassle-free method to create a hands-on working version of code which would help us to embed an exact place in google map in Reactjs.
