GoGoCarto is higly configurable, let’s discover all the configurations options


See Taxonomy and Dataset documentation.

"data": {
  "taxonomy": "https://pixelhumain.github.io/GoGoCartoJs/web/data/taxonomy.json",
  "elements": "https://pixelhumain.github.io/GoGoCartoJs/web/data/elements.json",
  "requestByBounds": false
"menu": {
  "width": 450,
  "smallWidthStyle": false
  "showOnePanePerMainOption": false,
  "showCheckboxForMainFilterPane": true, // you can hide the checkboxes for a lighter design
  "showCheckboxForSubFilterPane": true,
  "displayNumberOfElementForEachCategory": false,
  "displayNumberOfElementRoundResults": false // display 300+ instead of 325

You can custom the menu width (in pixel)

If your taxonomy is complex, you should better use the option showOnePanePerMainOption It will add a vertical side bar with all the main option icons. clicking each main option icon will show a diferent pane for each main option children.

Check OneFilterPanePerMainOption Demo

Set smallWidthStyle to false to use smaller font size and margins, so the taxonomy fit better into the fixed width

displayNumberOfElementForEachCategory Will add a label next to each category to display how many elements on the current viewport have this category Use displayNumberOfElementRoundResults to round the results (display 300+ instead of 325)


"general": {
    "activateHistoryStateAndRouting": true

If activateHistoryStateAndRouting is true, every action on GoGoCarto will update the url hash, and an history will be created. It means you can refresh the page anytime and you will keep the same state. You can use the browser “back” function to go to the previous action

Example : http://gogocarto.fr#/fiche/Element-example/10m9/@46.662,-1.110,12z?cat=Education


InfoBar is the panel to display element informations, opened on marker click

"infobar": {
    "width": 520,
    "activate": true,
    "bodyTemplate": {
      "content": "http://localhost/GoGoCartoJs/web/data/body-template.md",
      "isMarkdown": true,
      "type": "url"
    "headerTemplate": {
      "content": "{{ description|gogo_textarea }}",
      "isMarkdown": false,
      "type": "string"

Custom width in pixel

If activate is set to false, nothing happens on marker click, the info bar is not displayed

Custom bodyTemplate and headerTemplate of an element can be provided. See Info Bar Templates to learn how to build a template. An object need to be given with the following options:


"marker": {
    "displayPopup": true,
    "popupAlwaysVisible": false,
    "popupTemplate": {
      "content": "Hi  !",
      "isMarkdown": false,
      "type": "string"

When activated, the popup is a content displayed on top of the marker, by default only when mouse hover the marker Same as InfoBar templates, you can customize the popup when mouse hover a marker. by default this popup display the name of the element


Choose the language (only french and english for now), and overwrite any translation if desired

"language": "en",
"translations": { // used this property to overwrite any translation
  "show.as.list": "Display List View", // will use "Display List View" instead of default "Show as List"

A common use case is to overwrite the way we call an “element”. For exemple if I’m collecting data about NGO organisations, I will better display “choose an organisation” instead of “choose an element”. Here are the translations keys to overwrite

"translations": {
  "element": "organisation",
  "element.definite": "the organisation",
  "element.indefinite": "an organisation",
  "element.plural": "organisations"

If you want to translate GoGoCartoJs for a new language, your help will be very appreciated! Please contact the developer team if you don’t know how to do it.


"map": {
  "defaultBounds": {
    "_southWest": { "lat": 40, "lng": -5 },
    "_northEast": { "lat": 52, "lng": 10 }
  "defaultCenter": { "lat": 46, "lng": 0 },
  "maxBounds": {
    "_southWest": { "lat": -90, "lng": -180 },
    "_northEast": { "lat": 90, "lng": 180 }
  "useClusters": true,
  "saveViewportInCookies": false,
  "saveTileLayerInCookies": false,
  "defaultTileLayer": "cartodb",
  "tileLayers": [
      "name": "cartodb",
      "url": "https://cartodb-basemaps-{s}.global.ssl.fastly.net/light_all/{z}/{x}/{y}.png",
      "attribution": "© <a href="https://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright">OpenStreetMap contributors</a>"

DefaultBounds and DefautCenter are used for the initial map state. MaxBounds is used to prevent loading elements outside of this bounds useClusters a cluster is when we group at least 4 marker into a single object displayed on the map


Please visit Features Documentation to discover in detail the features.

"features": {
  // buttons added to the element info bar menu
  "favorite": // save an element as favotite (using cookies)
  "share": // get the element url inside gogocarto
  "directions": // calculate routing towards the element position
  "edit": // Open the given edit page in a new tab
  "delete": // Open a popup dialog and send delete request to your server
  "report":  // Open a report dialog and send a report request to your server

  "sendMail": // send an mail to an Element

  "listMode": // access to list mode

  "export": // popup to get the iframe code of the current map
  "layers": // choose different tile layer for the map
  "mapdefaultview": // restore viewport to default viewport

  "searchPlace": // Allow search for a place
  "searchElements": // Allow search for elements (needs a distant API)
  "searchGeolocate": // Add geolocation button to geolocate the user position

  "customPopup": // Display a custom text on the bottom of the map

If you don’t provide any features config, a default set of basic config will be loaded. If you provide a features config, only the features listed in it will be available. To simply activate a feature, just add it on the list

"features": {
  "favorite": {}, // give empty object to activate the feature with default config
  "listMode": {}

All the features can be configured with the following attributes

"roles" : string[] = ['anonymous', 'anonymous_with_mail', 'user', 'admin'];
"url": ""
"inIframe": default true

roles : an array of the role who can access this feature. you can use your own roles names, for example [‘anonymous’, ‘user’, ‘admin’]. url : the following features need an URL to an API to work : edit, report, delete, sendMail, searchElements inIframe activate or not the feature when gogocarto is loaded in iframe

Here an example of full custom features configuration

  listMode: {},
  searchPlace: { },
  searchGeolocate: {},
  searchElements:   {
      url: 'http://localhost/GoGoCarto/web/app_dev.php/api/elements/search'
  delete:   {
      url: 'http://localhost/GoGoCarto/web/app_dev.php/interact/delete',
      roles: ['admin'], inIframe: false
  report:   {
      url: 'http://localhost/GoGoCarto/web/app_dev.php/interact/report',
      roles: ['anonymous', 'user']
  edit:     { url: 'http://localhost/GoGoCarto/web/app_dev.php/elements/edit/' },
  sendMail: { url: 'http://localhost/GoGoCarto/web/app_dev.php/interact/sendMail' },
  favorite: { inIframe: false },
  directions: { },
  export:   { inIframe: false },
  share: { },
  layers: { },
  mapdefaultview: { },
  customPopup: {
    inIframe: false,
    options: {
      text: "Hello ! this is some custom text",
      showOnlyOnce: true, // If user click "close" the popup will never show again
      id: 4, // bump this id everytime you want the showOnlyOnce to be reseted


"security": {
  "userRoles": ["user"], // other examples : ["ROLE_ADMIN", "ROLE_USER"]
  "userEmail": "test@gt.gt"

userRoles is used to know if the current user has access to different features. userEmail is used to prefill some interaction modals, like “report error”, or “send mail”. To set dynamically userRole and userEmail, please check How to interact with Component

  menuTopImage: "http://url/to/image",
  buttonOpenMenu: "http://url/to/image"
