The Angular Maps library is a geographical data visualization tool for rendering maps from GeoJSON data or other map providers like OpenStreetMap, Google Maps, and Bing Maps. Its rich feature set includes markers, labels, bubbles, navigation lines, legends, tooltips, zooming, panning, drill down, and more.

Why choose the Syncfusion Angular Maps library?

Angular Maps customization.

Easy to customize

To visualize a geometric shape in SVG format in Maps, you can bind GeoJSON data to it. GeoJSON data is light and simple to read. You can render a world map or a U.S. map and alter it with the Angular Maps control’s built-in options to achieve the required layout.

Angular Maps geospatial imaging.

Geospatial imaging services

Works with services like Google Maps, Bing Maps, and OpenStreetMap to view satellite, aerial, and street maps by locating map data quickly without the use of any external shape inputs.

Angular Maps markers and bubbles.

Markers and bubbles

Markers are notes on maps that indicate specific latitude and longitude points using symbols. Bubbles are used to convey additional information about shapes such as population density and land area.

Angular Maps multiple layers.

Multiple geometric layers

A map with several geometric layers in a single view can be generated with sublayers. You can render the geographic elements of a country, such as rivers and valleys, as a sublayer. Each layer can be drilled.

Angular Maps adaptive layout.

Adapts to any resolution

Maps has a highly responsive layout and an optimized design for desktops, tablets, and phones. It works well on all mobile phones that use iOS, Android, or Windows OS.

Angular Maps projections.

Custom projections

The Angular Maps component supports Mercator, rectangular, Miller, Eckert 3, Eckert 5, Eckert 6, and Winkel 3 projections.

Angular Maps zooming and panning.

Zooming and panning

Zooming and panning in Angular Maps are fast. Zoom the map by scrolling the mouse wheel, clicking the shapes, or using the zooming toolbar. Pan the map to navigate among regions easily.

Angular Maps globalization.

Globalization and localization

An internationalization library is used to globalize number, date, and time values in Maps. All the strings used in the Maps user interface can be localized by users as needed. Localizing UI strings involves using the localization (l10n) library.

Angular Maps library code example

Easily get started with Angular Maps library using a few simple lines of HTML and TS code, as demonstrated in the following. Also explore our Angular Maps library example, which shows you how to render maps.

<ejs-maps id='container'>
    <e-layer [shapeData] = 'shapeData' [dataSource]='dataSource' [shapePropertyPath]='shapePropertyPath' [shapeDataPath]='shapeDataPath' [shapeSettings]='shapeSettings'>
import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { world_map } from 'src/app/world_map';

  selector: 'app-root',
  // Specifies the template string for the maps component.
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
export class AppComponent {
    public shapeData: object = world_map;
    public dataSource: object =[
        { "Country": "China", "Membership": "Permanent", "Color": "#feb24c"},
        { "Country": "United States", "Membership": "Permanent", "Color": "#feb24c"},
        { "Country": "United Kingdom", "Membership": "Permanent", "Color": "#feb24c"},
        { "Country": "Germany", "Membership": "Permanent", "Color": "#feb24c"},
        { "Country": "Italy", "Membership": "Permanent", "Color": "#feb24c"},
        { "Country": "India", "Membership": "Permanent", "Color": "#feb24c"},
        { "Country": "Australia", "Membership": "Permanent", "Color": "#feb24c"},
        { "Country": "Japan", "Membership": "Permanent", "Color": "#feb24c"},
        { "Country": "France","Membership": "Permanent", "Color": "#feb24c" },
        { "Country": "Russia","Membership": "Permanent", "Color": "#feb24c"},
        { "Country": "Kazakhstan","Membership": "Non-Permanent", "Color": "#f03b20"},
        { "Country": "Poland","Membership": "Non-Permanent", "Color": "#f03b20"},
        { "Country": "Sweden","Membership": "Non-Permanent", "Color": "#f03b20"},
        { "Country": "South Africa","Membership": "Non-Permanent", "Color": "#f03b20"}];
    public shapePropertyPath: string = 'name';
    public shapeDataPath: string = 'Country';
    public shapeSettings: object = {
        fill: '#E5E5E5',
        colorValuePath: 'Color'

GeoJSON layer

Bind GeoJSON data to maps to render any geometric shape in SVG (scalable vector graphics) format to visualize data. For example, render the world map or U.S. map and customize it to the desired look using built-in options in the Angular Maps component. Add any number of layers to the maps.

Angular Maps rendered with geometric types over an OpenStreetMap map.

Geometric types

GeoJSON data contains geometric objects with properties such as geometric types and coordinates. The geometric types are the values present in the geometric objects of the GeoJSON data that specify the type of shape to be rendered, along with the coordinates that help draw the shape’s boundary line. Polygon, MultiPolygon, LineString, MultiLineString, Point, MultiPoint, and GeometryCollection are the supported geometric types.

Geo-imagery visuals

Built-in support for external geospatial imagery services, such as Bing Maps and OpenStreetMap, is used to visualize satellite, aerial, and street maps, or other kinds of imagery tiles without any external shape inputs. Users can render maps from various map providers, for example, Google Maps Tile API, TomTom, Mapbox, and Esri’s ArcGIS. By using these external services, map data can be located easily.

Angular Maps with multiple layers.

Multiple layers

Using sublayers, an Angular map can be created with multiple geometric layers in a single view. For example, render additional geographic features of a country such as rivers and valleys as sublayers. You can also drill down in each layer.


Denote a place with symbols or a note at the desired latitude and longitude on a map using a marker. For example, indicate a particular place on a U.S. map using a balloon marker shape. You can also place any HTML element as a marker and add multiple markers to a map.

Angular Maps rendered with marker clustering.

Marker clustering

Display multiple markers in the same location by clustering them. For example, use markers to indicate the top 50 cities in the world. If one marker overlaps another, they will be clustered, and the total number of markers will be displayed over the cluster.

Marker drag and drop

Drag and drop markers to reposition them in the map. After dragging and dropping markers, the marker data source and elements such as marker shape, color, and tooltip content can be changed using supported events.

Color mapping

Categorize the shapes on a map by customizing their colors based on the underlying values. The Angular Maps component supports three types of color mapping: range color mapping, equal color mapping, and desaturation color mapping.

Range color mapping applied to the shapes in Angular Maps.

Range color mapping

Apply colors to the shapes by comparing their values with a desired numeric range. For example, apply colors to states in the U.S. based on population density.

Equal color mapping applied to the shapes in Angular Maps.

Equal color mapping

Differentiate a shape’s fill based on its underlying values and colors by using equal color mapping. For example, apply colors to states in the U.S. based on a winning political candidate.

Desaturation color mapping applied to the shapes in Angular Maps.

Desaturation color mapping

Change the opacity of the shapes by comparing their values with a desired numeric range. Minimum and maximum opacity of the shapes can be customized.

Desaturation with multiple colors

Apply multiple colors to a shape from a gradient by comparing values with a desired numeric range. Any number of colors can be specified for creating the gradient.


Legends provide valuable information for interpreting a map by explaining colors, shapes, or other identifiers based on the data visualized. The Angular Maps component supports two types of legends: default and interactive.

Angular Maps rendered with default legend items.


A legend contains swatches of symbols with descriptions to denote the categories of shapes in a map.

Angular Maps rendered with interactive legend.


Use a map with an interactive legend to find the range of an underlying shape’s value on mouse hover.

Zooming and panning

Zoom an Angular map for close-up analysis by pinching the map, scrolling the mouse wheel, clicking the shapes, or by using the zooming toolbar. Pan the map for easy navigation across regions. You can also change the zoom level of the initial rendering.
