    OpenLayers

    OpenLayers is a high-performance, feature-packed library for creating interactive maps on the web. It can display map tiles, vector data and markers loaded from any source on any web page. OpenLayers has been developed to further the use of geographic information of all kinds. It is completely free, Open Source JavaScript, released under the BSD 2-Clause License.

    Getting Started

    Install the ol package:

    npm install ol
    

    Import just what you need for your application:

    import Map from 'ol/Map';
    import View from 'ol/View';
    import TileLayer from 'ol/layer/Tile';
    import XYZ from 'ol/source/XYZ';
    
    new Map({
      target: 'map',
      layers: [
        new TileLayer({
          source: new XYZ({
            url: 'https://{a-c}.tile.openstreetmap.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png'
          })
        })
      ],
      view: new View({
        center: [0, 0],
        zoom: 2
      })
    });

    ES Modules

    The ol package contains a src/ folder with the sources, authored as ES Modules. To use these untranspiled sources, either import modules from ol/src instead of ol, or configure your bundler with an alias pointing to ol/src for the ol package.

    TypeScript support

    The ol package includes auto-generated TypeScript declarations as *.d.ts files.

    OpenLayers runs on all modern browsers that support HTML5 and ECMAScript 5. This includes Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Edge.

    For older browsers and platforms (Internet Explorer, Android 4.x, iOS v12 and older, Safari v12 and older), polyfills may be needed for the following browser features:
