react-native-maps-super-cluster v1.6.0

A Clustering-enabled map for React Native

React Native Super Cluster

This module wraps AirBnB's react-native-maps and uses MapBox's SuperCluster as clustering engine.


See the showcase application.


This module wants to provide a stable and performing solution for maps clustering in React Native. In particular, our efforts are focused on integrating SuperCluster methods into React's state/lifecycle events, ensuring stability, compatibility and great performance.


npm i --save react-native-maps-super-cluster



  • the prop key of the markers rendered through renderMarker should not be left up to React. Instead, we strongly suggest to use an id in order the have unique keys while still taking advantage of React's recycling
  • ClusteredMapView supports usual React children. Those children won't be affected by clustering, i.e. the behavior for those children is exactly the same as wrapping them around an AirBnB's react-native-maps instance
  • Use onMarkerPress event on MapView instead of using onPress directly on Markers whenever possibile, in particular if you have a lot of pins and clusters. Within onMarkerPress you have access to the marker identifier through the event.nativeEvent attribute, hence you should be able to do everything you would do within an onPress function of a Marker
import React, { Component } from 'react'
import { Marker, Callout } from 'react-native-maps'
import ClusteredMapView from 'react-native-maps-super-cluster'

const INIT_REGION = {
  latitude: 41.8962667,
  longitude: 11.3340056,
  latitudeDelta: 12,
  longitudeDelta: 12

export default class MyClusteredMapView extends Component {

  renderCluster = (cluster, onPress) => {
    const pointCount = cluster.pointCount,
          coordinate = cluster.coordinate,
          clusterId = cluster.clusterId

    // use pointCount to calculate cluster size scaling
    // and apply it to "style" prop below

    // eventually get clustered points by using
    // underlying SuperCluster instance
    // Methods ref:
    const clusteringEngine =,
          clusteredPoints = clusteringEngine.getLeaves(clusterId, 100)

    return (
      <Marker coordinate={coordinate} onPress={onPress}>
        <View style={styles.myClusterStyle}>
          <Text style={styles.myClusterTextStyle}>
            Eventually use <Callout /> to
            show clustered point thumbs, i.e.:
         => (
                    <Image source={p.image}>

            IMPORTANT: be aware that Marker's onPress event isn't really consistent when using Callout.

  renderMarker = (data) => <Marker key={ || Math.random()} coordinate={data.location} />


  render() {
    return (
        style={{flex: 1}}
        ref={(r) => { = r }}
        renderCluster={this.renderCluster} />
