  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 is up to you. You can center your map wherever you desire (modifying the starting position) and set an appropriate zoom level (modifying the starting zoom) to match your users’ needs. Additionally, you can change the map’s look (by updating the source URL); choose from a range of visually appealing map styles from our extensive MapTiler standard maps, or create your own to truly differentiate your application.

  4. Replace the TileJSON source URL with your custom map style. Check the Publish the map section to get the URL of your custom style.

             const source = new ol.source.TileJSON({
                 url: `${key}`, // source URL
                 tileSize: 512,
                 crossOrigin: 'anonymous'
