Combining the what3words.js AutoSuggest Component with a Google Map


The what3words JavaScript API wrapper provides components to make using the what3words API even easier. In this tutorial, we will go through using the autosuggest component in combination with a Google Map. We will add the search field using the component and then respond to its select event to place a pin on the map at the inputted location.

You will also need to sign up for a Google Maps developer account and be able to view other Google Maps tutorials at

We also have tutorials demonstrating it’s use with both Mapbox and LeafletJS.
