JavaScript Maps API

This is the easiest and fastest way to use your MapTiler maps in JavaScript. Simply use the code below the map and replace the text YOUR_MAPTILER_API_KEY_HERE with your MapTiler API KEY.

  1. Copy the following code, paste it into your favorite text editor, and save it as a .html file.

  2. Replace YOUR_MAPTILER_API_KEY_HERE with your actual MapTiler API key.

  3. The next it’s up to you. You can start the map in a different place by modifying the starting position and starting zoom, and you can change the look of the map to any of our styles, or yours, by updating the style URL. See what’s available here.

JavaScript Maps API library

At MapTiler we are committed to web maps based on vector tiles, we use MapLibre GL JS as the main map library. Using MapLibre GL JS with vector tiles from MapTiler Cloud gives you a beautiful and smooth map browsing experience.

MapLibre GL JS (open-source fork of Mapbox GL JS) is a web map library based on WebGL. MapLibre GL JS loads vector tiles and styling from the host and draws a map in the browser. This solution requires WebGL support in a browser.
