This article goes in detailed on laravel add multiple marker in google map. I’m going to show you about how to show markers location in google map dynamically from database in laravel.

In this example, we will create one simple route and display a google map with multiple markers. We will use the google maps js library for adding google Maps. you can easily add a google map in laravel 6, laravel 7, laravel 8 and laravel 9 versions.

Preview:

Step 1: Install Laravel

This is optional; however, if you have not created the laravel app, then you may go ahead and execute the below command:

composer create-project laravel/laravel example-app

Step 2: Create Route

In this is step we need to create some routes for google maps example view.

routes/web.php

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

use App\Http\Controllers\GoogleController;

/*

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

| Web Routes

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

|

| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These

| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which

| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!

|

*/

Route::get('google-map', [GoogleController::class, 'index']);

Step 3: Create Controller

in this step, we need to create GoogleController and add following code on that file:

app/Http/Controllers/GoogleController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class GoogleController extends Controller

{

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function index()

{

$locations = [

['Mumbai', 19.0760,72.8777],

['Pune', 18.5204,73.8567],

['Bhopal ', 23.2599,77.4126],

['Agra', 27.1767,78.0081],

['Delhi', 28.7041,77.1025],

['Rajkot', 22.2734719,70.7512559],

];

return view('googleAutocomplete');

}

}

Step 4: Google Map API Key in Env

here, we will add new variable in .env file fo set google map api key. so let's add as bellow:

.env

GOOGLE_MAP_KEY=YOUR_GOOGLE_API_KEY

Step 5: Create Blade Files

here, we need to create blade files for google autocomplete example. so let's create one by one files:

resources/views/googleAutocomplete.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html lang="{{ str_replace('_', '-', app()->getLocale()) }}">

<head>

<meta charset="utf-8">

const myLatLng = { lat: 22.2734719, lng: 70.7512559 };

const map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), {

zoom: 5,

center: myLatLng,

});

var locations = {{ Js::from($locations) }};

var infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow();

var marker, i;

for (i = 0; i < locations.length; i++) {

marker = new google.maps.Marker({

position: new google.maps.LatLng(locations[i][1], locations[i][2]),

map: map

});

google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'click', (function(marker, i) {

return function() {

infowindow.setContent(locations[i][0]);

infowindow.open(map, marker);

}

})(marker, i));

}

}

window.initMap = initMap;

</script>

<script type="text/javascript"

src="https://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?key={{ env('GOOGLE_MAP_KEY') }}&callback=initMap" ></script>

</body>
