Exercise AndroidMapper, Android Application using MapView

In the previous exercises, the MapView track the GPS and center on it repeatly. In this exercise, AndroidMapper, it will not track on GPS. Instead, there are three options to center in starting of the MapView.
- Default: Start ViewMap without any center location.
- GPS: It's the current GPS (which will be track before ViewMap start). If no valid GPS, this option will be disable.
- Location: User input location. If no location input, this option will be disable.



After ViewMap loaded, user can move the Map, Zoom-in/out using MapView's BuiltInZoomControls.



This application is not yet finished, more feature (or bug fixed) will be added in the furture.

Create a Android Application named, AndroidMapper.
Package Name: com.AndroidMapper
Target Google Platform 2.0 with Google APIs.

Modify main.xml to have the UI as seen in the picture.

You have to Obtaining a Maps API Key, and insert into the field "apikey"

Modify AndroidMapView.java
package com.AndroidMapper;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.CheckBox;
import android.widget.TextView;

import com.google.android.maps.GeoPoint;
import com.google.android.maps.MapActivity;

public class AndroidMapView extends MapActivity {

private TextView myLongitude, myLatitude;
private CheckBox mySatellite;

private MapView myMapView;
private MapController myMapController;

private void SetSatellite()
{
myMapView.setSatellite(mySatellite.isChecked());
};

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle icicle) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
super.onCreate(icicle);
setContentView(R.layout.mymapview);

Bundle bundle = this.getIntent().getExtras();
int Mode = bundle.getInt("Mode");

myMapView = (MapView)findViewById(R.id.mapview);
myMapController = myMapView.getController();
myMapView.setBuiltInZoomControls(true);

myLongitude = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.longitude);
myLatitude = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.latitude);
mySatellite = (CheckBox)findViewById(R.id.satellite);
mySatellite.setOnClickListener(mySatelliteOnClickListener);

SetSatellite();


if(Mode == 1)
{
int intLatitude = bundle.getInt("Latitude");
int intLongitude = bundle.getInt("Longitude");
GeoPoint initGeoPoint = new GeoPoint(intLatitude, intLongitude);
CenterLocation(initGeoPoint);
}


}



@Override
protected boolean isRouteDisplayed() {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
return false;
}

private void CenterLocation(GeoPoint centerGeoPoint)
{
myMapController.animateTo(centerGeoPoint);


myLongitude.setText("Longitude: "+
String.valueOf((float)centerGeoPoint.getLongitudeE6()/1000000)
);
myLatitude.setText("Latitude: "+
String.valueOf((float)centerGeoPoint.getLatitudeE6()/1000000)
);
};

private CheckBox.OnClickListener mySatelliteOnClickListener =
new CheckBox.OnClickListener(){

public void onClick(View v) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
SetSatellite();
}
};

}


Also modify AndroidManifest.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.AndroidMapper"
android:versionCode="1"
android:versionName="1.0">

<activity android:name=".AndroidMapper"
android:label="@string/app_name">

<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
</intent-filter>
</activity>
<activity android:name=".AndroidMapView">

<uses-library android:name="com.google.android.maps" />
</application>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />

</manifest>

I plan to integrate your AndroidMapper as a base for a project of mine. It will be hopefully open source, if my customer allow this. There for please let me know under which license your code examples are.

Android Er said...

hello Mic92,

It's just my exercise, have no any license. And also, I don't know how to use license!

Give me a link is ok:)

Mic92 said...

So it is public domain? I will post a github link, if it reaches a productive state.

can you please send me the source code..
i cant access it ..

I was searching about AndroidMapper, and I found your this blog. Even your technique is for Google platform 2.0, it is helpful. Thank you!
