Moveend Event

moveend1 map1 event1

Use of the moveend event.

In this example, a listener is registered for the map's moveend event. Whenever this listener is called, it updates the inputs below with the map extent in decimal degrees.

import 'ol/ol.css';
import Map from 'ol/Map';
import OSM from 'ol/source/OSM';
import TileLayer from 'ol/layer/Tile';
import View from 'ol/View';
import {getBottomLeft, getTopRight} from 'ol/extent';
import {toLonLat} from 'ol/proj';

const map = new Map({
  layers: [
    new TileLayer({
      source: new OSM(),
  target: 'map',
  view: new View({
    center: [0, 0],
    zoom: 2,

function display(id, value) {
  document.getElementById(id).value = value.toFixed(2);

function wrapLon(value) {
  const worlds = Math.floor((value + 180) / 360);
  return value - worlds * 360;

function onMoveEnd(evt) {
  const map = evt.map;
  const extent = map.getView().calculateExtent(map.getSize());
  const bottomLeft = toLonLat(getBottomLeft(extent));
  const topRight = toLonLat(getTopRight(extent));
  display('left', wrapLon(bottomLeft[0]));
  display('bottom', bottomLeft[1]);
  display('right', wrapLon(topRight[0]));
  display('top', topRight[1]);

map.on('moveend', onMoveEnd);
