flutter_map is the most popular, non-commercially owned mapping library for Flutter - an open-source framework designed to build performant and beautiful multi-platform apps.

Adding a tile layer that uses Thunderforest is as easy as adding any other tile layer.

This can just be added into your project inside a build method. Note that this is for flutter_map v3.0.0+ only.

        zoom: 9.2,
        maxZoom: 22,
    nonRotatedChildren: [
            source: 'Maps: © Thunderforest | Data: © OpenStreetMap contributors',
            onSourceTapped: null,
    children: [
            urlTemplate: 'https://{s}.tile.thunderforest.com/{style}/{z}/{x}/{y}{r}.png?apikey={apiKey}',
            subdomains: ['a', 'b', 'c'],
            additionalOptions: {
                'style': '<your-map-style>',
                'apiKey': '<your-api-key>',
