Since v5.1

This component allows apps to create a map source using React. It may contain Layer components as children.

import * as React from 'react';
import ReactMapGL, {Source, Layer} from 'react-map-gl';

const geojson = {
  type: 'FeatureCollection',
  features: [
    {type: 'Feature', geometry: {type: 'Point', coordinates: [-122.4, 37.8]}}

const layerStyle = {
  id: 'point',
  type: 'circle',
  paint: {
    'circle-radius': 10,
    'circle-color': '#007cbf'

function App() {
  const [viewport, setViewport] = React.useState({
    longitude: -122.45,
    latitude: 37.78,
    zoom: 14
  return (
    <ReactMapGL {...viewport} width="100vw" height="100vh" onViewportChange={setViewport}>
      <Source id="my-data" type="geojson" data={geojson}>
        <Layer {...layerStyle} />


The props provided to this component should be conforming to the Mapbox source specificationor CanvasSourceOptions.

Note that the map component's mapStyle prop defaults to mapbox://styles/mapbox/light-v8. To use an empty base map with your own sources, you need to override the prop, e.g.:

const EMPTY_STYLE = {
  version: 8,
  sources: {},
  layers: []

<ReactMapGL ... mapStyle={EMPTY_STYLE}>

When props change shallowly, the component will attempt to update the source. Do not define objects/arrays inline to avoid perf hit.

Once a <Source> is mounted, the following props should not change. If add/remove multiple JSX sources dynamically, make sure you use React's key prop to give each element a stable identity.

id (String)

Unique identifier of the source. If not provided, a default id will be assigned.

type (String, required)

Type of the source.
