This example demontrates custom positioning of the map controls. The zoom control options are placed on the left of the map and the map type controls are placed along the top of the map.

Read the documentation.

TypeScript

function initMap(): void {
  const map = new google.maps.Map(
    document.getElementById("map") as HTMLElement,
    {
      zoom: 12,
      center: { lat: -28.643387, lng: 153.612224 },
      mapTypeControl: true,
      mapTypeControlOptions: {
        style: google.maps.MapTypeControlStyle.HORIZONTAL_BAR,
        position: google.maps.ControlPosition.TOP_CENTER,
      },
      zoomControl: true,
      zoomControlOptions: {
        position: google.maps.ControlPosition.LEFT_CENTER,
      },
      scaleControl: true,
      streetViewControl: true,
      streetViewControlOptions: {
        position: google.maps.ControlPosition.LEFT_TOP,
      },
      fullscreenControl: true,
    }
  );
}

JavaScript

function initMap() {
  const map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), {
    zoom: 12,
    center: { lat: -28.643387, lng: 153.612224 },
    mapTypeControl: true,
    mapTypeControlOptions: {
      style: google.maps.MapTypeControlStyle.HORIZONTAL_BAR,
      position: google.maps.ControlPosition.TOP_CENTER,
    },
    zoomControl: true,
    zoomControlOptions: {
      position: google.maps.ControlPosition.LEFT_CENTER,
    },
    scaleControl: true,
    streetViewControl: true,
    streetViewControlOptions: {
      position: google.maps.ControlPosition.LEFT_TOP,
    },
    fullscreenControl: true,
  });
}

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. */

body {
  height: 100%;
  margin: 0;
