  2. Enable the following services under API Restrictions:


Installing and Configuration the Python Package

  1. Install with pip install wagtailgmaps

  2. Add wagtailgmaps to your settings.py INSTALLED_APPS section.

  3. Add some configuration in your settings.py file:

    # Mandatory
    WAGTAIL_ADDRESS_MAP_CENTER = 'Wellington, New Zealand'  # It must be a properly formatted address
    # Optional
    WAGTAIL_ADDRESS_MAP_ZOOM = 8  # See https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/tutorial#MapOptions for more information.
    WAGTAIL_ADDRESS_MAP_LANGUAGE = 'ru'  # See https://developers.google.com/maps/faq#languagesupport for supported languages.
  4. Use it:

    # myapp/models.py
    from django.db import models
    from wagtail.wagtailcore.models import Page
    from wagtailgmaps.edit_handlers import MapFieldPanel
    class MapPage(Page):
        # Wagtailgmaps expects a `CharField` (or any other field that renders as a text input)
        formatted_address = models.CharField(max_length=255)
        latlng_address = models.CharField(max_length=255)
        # Use the `MapFieldPanel` just like you would use a `FieldPanel`
        content_panels = Page.content_panels + [
            MapFieldPanel('latlng_address', latlng=True),
    # myapp/templates/myapp/map_page.html
    <a href="http://maps.google.com/?q={{ self.formatted_address }}">Open map (Formatted Address)</a>
    <a href="http://maps.google.com/?q={{ self.latlng_address }}">Open map (Lat/Long Address)</a>

Additional information

MapFieldPanel options

  • heading - A custom heading in the admin, defaults to "Location"
  • classname - Add extra css classes to the field
  • latlng - Field returns a LatLng instead of an address
  • centre - A custom override for this field
  • zoom - A custom override for this field

How the address option works under the hook

If using the address option, the field gets updated according to the Google Geocoding Service each time:

  • The map marker gets dragged and dropped into a location (dragend JS event).
  • Click happens somewhere in the map (click JS event).
  • Return key is pressed after editing the field (enterKey JS event for return key only).


When editing the model from the admin interface the affected field shows up with a map, like the screenshot above. If it doesn't, check your browser console to make sure that there is no error related to your API key.



  • Make a new branch for the release of the new version.
  • Update the CHANGELOG.
  • Update the version number in wagtailgmaps/__init__.py, following semver.
  • Make a PR and squash merge it.
  • Back on master with the PR merged, use make publish (confirm, and enter your password).
  • Finally, go to GitHub and create a release and a tag for the new version.
  • Done!
