How to Use Daum Map API in JavaScript

Daum Map API provides developers with various services such as map display, route search, and local search. Here’s a brief guide on how to use the Daum Map API in JavaScript.

Getting Started

To start using Daum Map API, you need to sign up for a Daum Map API key by following these steps:

  1. Go to the Daum Developers website and log in with your Daum account.
  2. Create a new project and register your application.
  3. Go to the API Console and enable the Daum Map API.

Once you have your API key, you can start using the Daum Map API in your JavaScript code.

Displaying a Map

To display a map on your webpage using the Daum Map API, you need to create a div element with an ID that will be used to reference the map later. For example:

<div id="map"></div>

Then, in your JavaScript code, you can create an instance of the Daum Map API and pass in the div element ID as a parameter. For example:

var mapContainer = document.getElementById('map');
var options = {
    center: new daum.maps.LatLng(37.566826, 126.9786567),
    level: 3,
var map = new daum.maps.Map(mapContainer, options);

This code will create a Daum Map object with a center point of Seoul, South Korea and a zoom level of 3.

Searching for Places

You can also use the Daum Map API to perform local searches for places such as restaurants, cafes, and hotels. Here’s an example of how to search for a restaurant using the daum.maps.services object:

var ps = new daum.maps.services.Places();

ps.keywordSearch('서울 중구 세종대로 110', function (data, status, pagination) {
    if (status === daum.maps.services.Status.OK) {
        // Display the first result on the map
        var place = data[0];
        var marker = new daum.maps.Marker({
            position: new daum.maps.LatLng(place.y, place.x),
            map: map,
        map.setCenter(new daum.maps.LatLng(place.y, place.x));

This code will search for a place with the address ‘서울 중구 세종대로 110’ and display the first result on the map as a marker.
