Location Picker and Place Autocomplete Plugin For Google Maps - Location Picker

Location Picker is a jQuery plugin that draws a circle on the Google Map presenting area selection based on latitude/longitude values and/or location name provided by users. Also supports address / place autocomplete search powered by Google Places API.

Basic usage:

1. Include the necessary jQuery library and Google Places API on the html page.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
<script src="//maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false&libraries=places"></script>

2. Include the jQuery location picker after jQuery library.

<script src="dist/locationpicker.jquery.min.js"></script>

3. Create a container to place the Google Maps.

<div id="example"></div>

4. Call the function and provide your location data to display a selection area on the Google Map.

  location: {latitude: 46.15242437752303, longitude: 2.7470703125}

5. Customize the location picker with the following options.


  // these are default options
  location: {
    latitude: 40.7324319,
    longitude: -73.82480799999996
  locationName: "",
  radius: 500,
  zoom: 15,
  scrollwheel: true,
  inputBinding: {
      latitudeInput: null,
      longitudeInput: null,
      radiusInput: null,
      locationNameInput: null
  enableAutocomplete: false,
  enableAutocompleteBlur: false,
  enableReverseGeocode: true,
  draggable: true,
  // must be undefined to use the default gMaps marker
  markerIcon: undefined

6. Callback events.


  onchanged: function(currentLocation, radius, isMarkerDropped) {},
  onlocationnotfound: function(locationName) {},
  oninitialized: function(component) {}
