A kivy garden mapview demo.

Project description


Github Build Status Build Status Coverage Status PyPI version

Mapview is a Kivy widget for displaying interactive maps. It has been designed with lot of inspirations of Libchamplain and Leaflet.

The goal of this widget is to be a replacement of Google Maps widget, even if this one works very well, it just works on Android with Kivy. I wanted a map widget that can support custom map, and designed with the latests state-of-the-art Kivy's methods.


Marker clustering


  • native multitouch (one for translate, many for translate and zoom)
  • asynchronous downloading
  • avoided GPU limitation / float precisions issues on tiles coordinates
  • marker support
  • blazing fast!
  • supports Z/X/Y providers by default with MapSource
  • supports .mbtiles via MBTilesMapSource
  • supports marker clustering, via ClusteredMarkerLayer


It requires the concurrent.futures and requests. If you use it on Android / iOS, don't forget to add openssl as a requirements, otherwise you'll have an issue when importing urllib3 from requests.


pip install mapview


This widget can be either used within Python or Kv. That's said, not everything can be done in Kv, to prevent too much computing.

from kivy_garden.mapview import MapView
from import App

class MapViewApp(App):
    def build(self):
        mapview = MapView(zoom=11, lat=50.6394, lon=3.057)
        return mapview
