leaflet-image

Export images out of Leaflet maps without a server component, by using Canvas and CORS.

Requirements

  • Any tile layer providers (OSM, MapBox, etc) must support CORS
  • Any markers on the map must also support CORS. The default Leaflet-CDN markers don't, so they aren't supported.
  • Your browser must support CORS and Canvas, so IE >= 10 with no exceptions.

usage

browserify

npm install --save leaflet-image

web

curl https://raw.github.com/mapbox/leaflet-image/gh-pages/leaflet-image.js > leaflet-image.js

example

var map = L.mapbox.map('map', 'tmcw.map-u4ca5hnt').setView([38.9, -77.03], 14);
leafletImage(map, function(canvas) {
    // now you have canvas
});

// example thing to do with that canvas
function doImage(err, canvas) {
    var img = document.createElement('img');
    var dimensions = map.getSize();
    img.width = dimensions.x;
    img.height = dimensions.y;
    img.src = canvas.toDataURL();
    document.getElementById('images').innerHTML = '';
    document.getElementById('images').appendChild(img);
}
