Geo | Small jQuery plugin for a fast & simple JavaScript mapping geo API

jQuery Geo is an open-source, geospatial mapping jQuery plugin from Applied Geographics developed with the intention of making spatial web mapping significantly simpler than it may initially seem.

Created by Applied Geographics

After years of internal development, we are pleased to bring our JavaScript map widget and spatial analysis tools to the open-source world in the form of a jQuery plugin.

Getting Started

Using jQuery Geo requires, at a minimum, adding one element, including one script (apart from jQuery itself, version 1.9 or higher), and calling one function.

You can also get the library through JSPM and NPM.

Load via jspm

$ npm install jspm --save-dev
$ jspm init
$ jspm install jquery
$ jspm install npm:jquery.geo
// lib/main.js
import $ from 'jquery';
import geomap from 'jquery.geo';

$( '#map' ).geomap( );

Download via npm

$ npm install jquery --save-dev
$ npm install jquery.geo --save-dev
<div id="map" style="height: 480px;"></div>
<script src="node_modules/jquery/dist/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="node_modules/jquery.geo/dist/jquery.geo-1.0.0-rc1.1.min.js"></script>
  $(function() {
    $( "#map" ).geomap( );

Load via CDN script

The following copy-and-paste snippet will help you get started.

<div id="map" style="height: 480px;"></div>
<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>
  $(function() {
    $( "#map" ).geomap( );

Download direct

You can also download the latest release as a minified JavaScript file or a full, uncompressed one.
