A Flutter package for Forward and Reverse geocoding using Google Maps Platform Geocoding API. This package provides a more detailed data from API’s response such as Address Components, Geometry, Place Id, and Status Codes.

đŸŽ¯ Pre-requisites

Before you start using this package, you need a project with a billing account and the Geocoding API enabled at Google Maps Platform.

🔨 Installation

  fl_geocoder: ^0.0.1

⚙ Import

import 'package:fl_geocoder/fl_geocoder.dart';

🕹ī¸ Usage

Create an instance of FlGeocoder to access the functionalities available for geocoding. You have to pass a valid API key in order for the functions to work as expected. On the other hand, this package provides an error messages where you can debug and found out the cause of it.

final geocoder = const FlGeocoder('YOUR-API-KEY');

    onTap: () async {
        final coordinates = Location(40.714224, -73.961452);
        final results = await geocoder.findAddressesFromLocationCoordinates(
          location: coordinates,
          useDefaultResultTypeFilter: isFiltered,
          // resultType: 'route', // Optional. For custom filtering.
    child: Container(
      padding: const EdgeInsets.symmetric(
          horizontal: 8.0, vertical: 4.0),
      margin: const EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal: 8.0),
      decoration: const BoxDecoration(
          color: Colors.blue,
          borderRadius: BorderRadius.all(Radius.circular(5.0))),
      child: Text('Search',
          style: const TextStyle(color: Colors.white)),


FlGeocoder class contains three different functionalities for geocoding.

1. findAddressesFromLocationCoordinates

2. findAddressesFromPlaceId

Search for available list of address that matches the given place id.

❌ Error Handling

GeocodeFailure gives you the human-readable explanation for the error that you encountered.

    final latitude = double.parse(latitudeController.text);
    final longitude = double.parse(longitudeController.text);
    final coordinates = Location(latitude, longitude);
      try {
        final results =
            await widget.geocoder.findAddressesFromLocationCoordinates(
          location: coordinates,
          useDefaultResultTypeFilter: isFiltered,
      } on GeocodeFailure catch (e) {
        // Do some debugging or show an error message.
        log(e.message ?? 'Unknown error occured.');
      } catch (_) {
        // Do some debugging or show an error message.
