Interactive Maps in Your Angular Application: An Introduction to Using Leaflet with ngx-leaflet

The combination of Leaflet, a robust open-source library for maps, with ngx-leaflet, an Angular-specific package, opens up exciting possibilities for visualizing geodata in your web applications. In this article, we will navigate step by step through using Leaflet with ngx-leaflet, learning along the way how to create impressive, interactive maps, customize designs, and integrate seamlessly with your Angular app.

  1. Installation: Run the following command in the terminal to add ngx-leaflet and Leaflet to your Angular project:

    1npm install ngx-leaflet leaflet
  2. Configuration: Import the LeafletModule into the module where you want to use the map. Add LeafletModule.forRoot() to the imports section of your module file (e.g., app.module.ts):

    1import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    2import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    3import { LeafletModule } from '@asymmetrik/ngx-leaflet';
    4import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
    5
    6@NgModule({
    7  declarations: [AppComponent],
    8  imports: [BrowserModule, LeafletModule.forRoot()],
    9  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
    10})
    11export class AppModule {}
    12
  3. Create Component: Create an Angular component where the map should be displayed. Run the following command to create a new component:

    1ng generate component map
  4. Customize Component: In the created component (map.component.ts), add the map configuration and markers:

    1import { Component } from '@angular/core';
    2import * as L from 'leaflet';
    3
    4@Component({
    5  selector: 'app-map',
    6  templateUrl: './map.component.html',
    7  styleUrls: ['./map.component.css']
    8})
    9export class MapComponent {
    10  options = {
    11    layers: [
    12      L.tileLayer('https://{s}.tile.openstreetmap.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png', { maxZoom: 18, attribution: '...' })
    13    ],
    14    zoom: 10,
    15    center: L.latLng(51.505, -0.09)
    16  };
    17
    18  layers = [
    19    L.marker([51.5, -0.09]).bindPopup('A Marker')
    20  ];
    21}
    22
  5. Create HTML Template: Create an HTML file for your component (map.component.html):

    1<div leaflet [leafletOptions]="options" [leafletLayers]="layers" class="map-container"></div>
  6. Add Styling: Add styles for your map by creating a CSS file (map.component.css):

    1.map-container {
    2  height: 400px;
    3}

By following these steps, you can successfully integrate ngx-leaflet into your Angular application and display an interactive Leaflet map. The separation of template, component logic, and styling allows for a clean and structured development process.
