Custom Map Styles

The HERE SDK for Flutter provides a flexible solution to customize the map by loading custom map schemes.

If you are looking for predefined map styles, see the Quick Start guide for an introduction. The HERE SDK already includes a set of pre-configured map styles such as .normalDay or .satellite.

Create and Load Custom Map Styles

The most flexible solution to customize the map is to create your own map styles using a configuration file generated with the WYSIWYG HERE Style Editor.

To access the HERE Style Editor, please contact your HERE representative - as the editor is not yet publicly available. Please note that the resulting map styles are not compatible with the web editor, so only the HERE Style Editor can be used with the HERE SDK. This HERE SDK release is compatible with the HERE Style Editor 0.30. It is recommended to use the latest style editor and to update existing styles in case of unexpected behavior or errors.

As soon as you are satisfied with your custom map style, add the generated folder as asset and load the style onto the map view via the MapScene's loadScene method.

A usage example with code snippets will follow soon.

Using custom map styles can be very effective to differentiate your app from other map applications. In addition, it is possible to change map styles on-the-fly, for example, to shift the user's attention to certain map elements based on the current state of your app.
