Introduction

MapKitGoogleStyler allows you to include Google Maps JSON styles, that you can create here, and customize your MKMapView to look just like you want (or your client). Including this library is very very easy.

A post explaining this in detail can be found here: https://medium.com/@ortizfernandomartin/customize-mapkits-mkmapview-with-google-maps-styling-wizard-a5dcc095e19f#.ss3dencgh

Example

Using this can’t be simpler. The code is self explanatory

import UIKit
import MapKit
import MapKitGoogleStyler

class ViewController: UIViewController {

    @IBOutlet weak var mapView: MKMapView!

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()

        mapView.delegate = self
        configureTileOverlay()
    }

    private func configureTileOverlay() {
        // We first need to have the path of the overlay configuration JSON
        guard let overlayFileURLString = Bundle.main.path(forResource: "overlay", ofType: "json") else {
                return
        }
        let overlayFileURL = URL(fileURLWithPath: overlayFileURLString)

        // After that, you can create the tile overlay using MapKitGoogleStyler
        guard let tileOverlay = try? MapKitGoogleStyler.buildOverlay(with: overlayFileURL) else {
            return
        }

        // And finally add it to your MKMapView
        mapView.add(tileOverlay)
    }

}

extension ViewController: MKMapViewDelegate {
    func mapView(_ mapView: MKMapView, rendererFor overlay: MKOverlay) -> MKOverlayRenderer {
        // This is the final step. This code can be copied and pasted into your project
        // without thinking on it so much. It simply instantiates a MKTileOverlayRenderer
        // for displaying the tile overlay.
        if let tileOverlay = overlay as? MKTileOverlay {
            return MKTileOverlayRenderer(tileOverlay: tileOverlay)
        } else {
            return MKOverlayRenderer(overlay: overlay)
        }
    }
}
