It is required to use CocoaPods 1.10 or greater to integrate the framework. Simply add the following to your Podfile:

pod 'PWMapKit'


Documentation is included in the Documents folder in the repository as both HTML and as a .docset. You can also find the latest documentation here:


The primary use of the components of PWMapKit revolve around creating a map view, displaying points of interest, showing the user's location and indoor routing.


Make sure your app is correctly set up before you start working on map integration.

Location Permissions

Location authorization of "When In Use" or "Always" is required for a PWLocationManager to function normally. Please follow Apple's Best Practices for requesting location permissions. Do not attempt to use a PWLocationManager if the user does not provide location authorization as this can lead to unexpected behavior.

Adding Map View

// Load a building
PWBuilding.building(withIdentifier: <BUILDING_IDENTIFIER>) { (building, error) in
    // Get the buliding object here


// Show the building on the map
let mapView = PWMapView(frame: <FRAME>)
mapView.delegate = self

map.setBuilding(<BUILDING>, animated: <ANIMATED>) { (error) in     
    // Building should be on the map

Register Location Provider

The PWMapView can display a user location on the map if a location provider is registered with the PWMapView. The location providers are in the PWLocation framework (see to view setup examples of all different provider options). Once the location provider is initialized, the following call may be used to register the provider with the PWMapView:


NOTE: If using a virtual beacon provider such as Mist or Beacon Point, the "Uses Bluetooth LE accessories" background mode must be enabled in the "Capabilities" tab of your project's settings.


let routeOptions = PWRouteOptions(accessibilityEnabled: false,
                                  landmarksEnabled: false,
                                  excludedPointIdentifiers: nil)

PWRoute.createRoute(from: <START_POINT>,
                    to: <END_POINT>,
                    options: routeOptions) { (route, error) in
    // Plot the route on the map
    mapView.navigate(with: route)
