Wrapper for an OpenLayers map. The is passed to the MapComponent as a prop.

  • The map object can be shared across the whole application without passing it as prop to the whole render tree.
  • The map can be created asynchronusly (using a Promise) so that every child of the MapProvider is just rendered when the map is ready.

  • Documentation

Task: Add a map to your application. Use openstreetmap as tile layer.

import React from 'react';

import OlMap from 'ol/Map';
import OlView from 'ol/View';
import OlLayerTile from 'ol/layer/Tile';
import OlSourceOsm from 'ol/source/OSM';

import './App.css';
import 'ol/ol.css';
import 'antd/dist/antd.css';
import './react-geo.css';

import {
} from '@terrestris/react-geo';

const layer = new OlLayerTile({
  source: new OlSourceOsm()

const center = [ 788453.4890155146, 6573085.729161344 ];

const map = new OlMap({
  view: new OlView({
    center: center,
    zoom: 16,
  layers: [layer]

function App() {
  return (
    <div className="App">

export default App;

Beside the OpenLayers style the app needs its own stylesheet, e.g. to size the map.

html, body, #root, .App, #map {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  height: 100%;
  width: 100%;
