A location picker plugin for Flutter.

        LocationPicker.initApiKey('YOUR API KEY');
        LocationPicker picker = new LocationPicker();
          result = await picker.showLocationPicker;
          on PlatformException 
          //HANDLE ERROR
        setState(() {_locationPickerData = result.toString();});


The constructor

new LocationPicker();

Takes the following optional parameters for configuration:

      String titleText;
      bool closeIfLocationDenied;
      bool useGeoCoder;
      double initialLat;
      double initialLong;
      bool enableMyLocation;
      String androidAppBarColor;
      String androidNavBarColor;
      String androidStatusBarColor;
      String androidSelectButtonColor;
      String androidTitleAndBackButtonColor;
      //IOS ONLY
      String iosBackButtonText;
      String iosSelectButtonText;


The response is a Map<dynamic,dynamic> that contains the following fields that can be null:

                             ["latitude"] double
                             ["longitude"] double

                             ["postalCode"] String
                             ["thoroughfare"] String
                             ["line0"] String

    LocationPicker picker = new LocationPicker();
    // Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
    try {
      result = await picker.showLocationPicker;
    } on PlatformException {
    // If the widget was removed from the tree while the asynchronous platform
    // message was in flight, we want to discard the reply rather than calling
    // setState to update our non-existent appearance.
    if (!mounted)

    setState(() {
    _locationPickerData = result.toString();

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return new MaterialApp(
