Integrate Google Map with SAPUI5 Application

Hi Readers !!

Google Map in Ui5 application can be used for the logistics purpose of the organization as it provides output for optimized route for any vehicle, optimized distance, optimized travelling time, Traffic updates on the map, Toll Roads, information about the route and many more.

Map services are provided by many vendors which can be implemented in Ui5 applications.This blog explains about the Google Map integration with SapUi5 application.

To integrate Google Maps to sapui5 application, you need google map API. There are several APIs available for Google maps itself, like Google Map android API, Google Maps for IOS, Google maps for Street, Google maps Directions API, similarly many more. The one we are going to use is Google Maps JavaScript API.

To use google API, you will need particular developer API key. Below are the steps on how to create a developer key to use the API in the application.

  1. Go to the Google Developers Console.
  2. Create or select a project.
  3. Click Continue to enable the API and any related services.
  4. On the Credentials page, get a Browser key (and set the API Credentials)

Example: “”

Steps to create the application:

  • Open the SAP WEB IDE from Services.
  • Choose File -> NEW -> Project From Template -> SAPUI5 Application.
  • Provide the basic information(Project Name and NameSpace) to the application.
  • Select the View Type (HTML,XML,JSON,JavaScript) as HTML(using in our application).

Write the following code in your view(HTML)


      <div id="front-div">
      <strong>Start:</strong> <input id="origin"><br>
      <strong>End:</strong> <input id="destination">
<div id="left-div"></div>
<div id="map"></div>
<script src="model/distCal.js"></script>

Create a JS(javascript file) in the project folder model and add the following code


window.addEventListener('load', function() {
	var script = document.createElement('script');
	script.type = 'text/javascript';
	script.src =

function initMap() {
	var directionsRenderer = new google.maps.DirectionsRenderer({
		map: map
	var directionsService = new google.maps.DirectionsService;
	var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map'), {
		zoom: 6,
		center: {
			lat: 23.0225,
			lng: 72.5714
		} //Initial Location on Map
	var control = document.getElementById('front-div'); = 'inline';
        document.getElementById('origin').addEventListener('change', function() {
		distanceCalculator(directionsService, directionsRenderer);
	}, false);

	document.getElementById('destination').addEventListener('click', function() {
		distanceCalculator(directionsService, directionsRenderer);
	}, false);

/***************To Calculate and Display the Route*************/
function distanceCalculator(directionsService, directionsRenderer) {
	var origin = document.getElementById('origin').value;
	var destination = document.getElementById('destination').value;
	var req = {
		origin: origin,
		destination: destination,
		travelMode: 'DRIVING'
	directionsService.route(req, function(response, status) {
		if (status === 'OK') {

  • I followed your process, But still unable to load the google api, Based on u r suggestion  I got the API_KEY. Find the below link which I was consumed in my App.

    Could you please help me on this.

      • Hi Sai,


        you can ignore the design time error for the "google" object. It will be loaded upon loading the window.


        However, I had to apply one fix in the view HTML:

        Replace this line:

        <div id="map"></div>


        <div id="map" style="width: 100%; height: 100%"></div>


        It was working all the time just the map div was not visible... 🙂


        @Abhishek: thanks for the blog, nice one!


        Best regards,


    • Hello Sai,


      Application would with these error as it is resolved during the run time using your API.


      If you are still facing the issue please put up your query again.

  • Hi Abhishek,

    We have a requirement to integrate our SAP UI5 application with maps and plot our customers on map. Post that we should be able to select a few customers and we should be able to see optimized route on map and other customers close to that route. Would you have some idea if that is possible?



  • Hello Sharma,
    i have a same Problem as Sai,
    my structor is same as Master Detail from fiori Web IDE


    Could you please help me on this.





      • Hello,

        I’ve achieved this with a Custom Control :

        • Load google script :
          • only once
          • Inside a Promise to avoid the "callback=initMap"(in this case initMap must be defined globally while in sapui5 context, it is defined within a controller : it's a matter of javascript scope)
        • Externalize API Key (ex: one user = one API Key)
        • Reuse the control


        	function(Control,MessageBox) {
        		"use strict";
        		return Control.extend("com.raprincis.ui5.googleMap.controls.GoogleMap", {
        			metadata: {
        				properties: {
        					//Externalize key in order to get it from parameters or OData or whatever

  • Hi  everyone,

    I have to build a map where it shows some addresses with markers and when those markers are clicked, the info window shoes the data corresponding to that address (name, street, etc.). Im using WEB IDE.

    I have the same error in the controller.js where it says that google is not define, although when I run the index.html it works fine and the map shows and the markers are created with the info window.

    When I run the app in with SAP Fiori Launchpad Sandbox I get erros. There errors are google is not define, and others.


    I tried to load the google maps js api in the manifest.json first, then in the controller and it is not working. I tried the following.


    var gmapsURL = "";
    	, function(){
    //I get error that window is invalid
    window.addEventListener('load', function() {
    				var script = document.createElement('script');
    				script.type = 'text/javascript';
    				script.src =


    Can anybody help me? How do I load the googlemapsjs api? I already have a working API KEY (I tried already running the html file with the api in the script tag in the html file).

    I am new to SAPUI5. I'll really appreciate some help.

    Thank you.

    • Hello David,

  • Hi Abhishek,


    Nice article, however, on trying, I am running into some or the other issues and the output is not appearing - just a semicolon - not sure what's wrong


    Would it be possible for you to mail me the code project/all files to george[dot]abraham1912[at]gmail[dot]com?
