You can modify the presentation of the standard Woosmap base map behaviour, changing the visual display of roads, buildings, specific areas, and point of interest. You’re also able to hide these features. It lets you highlight specific components of the map and match your graphic style.

Woosmap Map supports the same stylers specifications as Google Maps, so you can use tools such as or to build your own JSON base map style.

Feature styles

To apply styles to different features and elements in a map, create an array of MapStyleSpec objects that define how the map should be styled. Here is an example styling the water elements and all POI except Shops:

        const myMap = new"map"), {
    center: {lat: 48.85, lng: 2.348},
    zoom: 15,
    styles: [
        "featureType": "point_of_interest",
        "elementType": "all",
        "stylers": [
                "visibility": "on"
        "featureType": "",
        "elementType": "all",
        "stylers": [
                "visibility": "off"
            "featureType": "water",
            "stylers": [{
                "lightness": -15
