Scaffolding the Front End With Vue.js
- A lightweight Mapbox GL JS component that helps developers render interactive maps in Vue applications.
- Import and register the component. Add the component to the template, insert your own API key, and pass Mapbox GL JS options as follows:.

- A Vue.js Mapbox component. This package does not include the Mapbox GL JS and CSS files. They need to be included in the of your HTML file.
- See Mapbox GL quickstart guide here: https://www.mapbox.com/mapbox-gl-js/api/. If you decide to pull in Mapbox Gl via npm and use a module bundler you need to require it globally from your main js file like this: window.mapboxgl = require('mapbox-gl');.
- In your main js file:. In your HTML file:. If you are using Vueify in your build script the Mapbox component can be included as follows:.
- CSS needs to be added for the map to show up. The #map container needs a height and a width.
Pinpoint accuracy and modularity are among the perks that make geocodes the perfect means of finding a particular location.
In this guide, we’ll build a simple geocoding app from scratch, using Vue.js and Mapbox.
Set Up File Structure of Application
We’ll cover the process from building the front-end scaffolding up to building a geocoder to handle forward geocoding and reverse geocoding.
Reverse Geocode Location With Mapbox API
Forward Geocoding With Mapbox Geocoder
Geocoding is the transformation of text-based locations to geographic coordinates (typically, longitude and latitude) that indicate a location in the world.
- Geocoding is of two types: forward and reverse. Forward geocoding converts location texts to geographic coordinates, whereas reverse geocoding converts coordinates to location texts.
- In other words, reverse geocoding turns 40.714224, -73.961452 into “277 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn”, and forward geocoding does the opposite, turning “277 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn” into 40.714224, -73.961452.
