A Map Widget with live position Updates for Flutter

Livemap A map widget with live position updates. Based on Flutter map and Geolocator. Provides a controller api to handle map state changes.

Note: the map controller api has been moved to the map_controller package. The Livemap controller package is now only responsible for the geolocation related controls



Api for the LiveMapController class

Map controls


centerOnPosition(Position position ): center the map on a Position

centerOnLiveMarker(): recenter the map on the live position marker

toggleAutoCenter(): toggle the value of autocenter

autoCenter: get the current value of autocenter: used when the position updates are on


autoRotate: automatically rotate the map from bearing

rotate(double degrees): rotate the map

Position stream

togglePositionStreamSubscription(): enable or disable the live position stream

On ready callback

Execute code right after the map is ready:

void initState() {
   liveMapController.onLiveMapReady.then((_) {


import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:flutter_map/flutter_map.dart';
import 'package:geolocator/geolocator.dart';
import 'package:livemap/livemap.dart';
import 'package:latlong/latlong.dart';

class LiveMapPage extends StatelessWidget {
LiveMapPage() () {
 mapController = MapController();
 liveMapController = LiveMapController(
   mapController:   mapController,
   autoCenter: true);

MapController mapController;
LiveMapController liveMapController;

Widget build(BuildContext context) {
 return Scaffold(
     body: LiveMap(
       mapController: mapController,
       liveMapController: liveMapController,
       mapOptions: MapOptions(
         center: LatLng(51.0, 0.0),
         zoom: 13.0,
       titleLayer: TileLayerOptions(
           urlTemplate: "https://{s}.tile.openstreetmap.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png",
           subdomains: ['a', 'b', 'c']),
     bottomNavigationBar: LiveMapBottomNavigationBar(
       liveMapController: liveMapController,

void dispose() {


A changefeed is available: it’s a stream with all state changes from the map controller. Ex:

import 'dart:async';

StreamSubscription _changefeed;
int _myzoom;

liveMapController.onReady.then((_) {
    _myzoom = liveMapController.zoom;
    _changefeed = liveMapController.changeFeed.listen((change) {
     if (change.name == "zoom") {
       setState(() {
           _myzoom = change.value;

// dispose: _changefeed.cancel();
