Restricting Map Bounds

This example creates a map that starts in Auckland, New Zealand. The map is restricted to New Zealand. The user can pan away from Auckland and explore other New Zealand cities, but the user cannot pan or zoom to beyond the constraints set on the map.

Try panning north, or zooming out, to see what happens when a user tries to move beyond these boundaries.

TypeScript

let map: google.maps.Map;

const NEW_ZEALAND_BOUNDS = {
  north: -34.36,
  south: -47.35,
  west: 166.28,
  east: -175.81,
};
const AUCKLAND = { lat: -37.06, lng: 174.58 };

function initMap(): void {
  map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map") as HTMLElement, {
    center: AUCKLAND,
    restriction: {
      latLngBounds: NEW_ZEALAND_BOUNDS,
      strictBounds: false,
    },
    zoom: 7,
  });
}

JavaScript

let map;
const NEW_ZEALAND_BOUNDS = {
  north: -34.36,
  south: -47.35,
  west: 166.28,
  east: -175.81,
};
const AUCKLAND = { lat: -37.06, lng: 174.58 };

function initMap() {
  map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), {
    center: AUCKLAND,
    restriction: {
      latLngBounds: NEW_ZEALAND_BOUNDS,
      strictBounds: false,
    },
    zoom: 7,
  });
}

CSS

/* Always set the map height explicitly to define the size of the div
       * element that contains the map. */
#map {
  height: 100%;
}

/* Optional: Makes the sample page fill the window. */
html,
body {
  height: 100%;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
}
