Google map in Android
Add tile to a map
In the previous post we talked about how to get weather information and how to parse the data to create a UI, now we want to add other weather tile to a map. To do it, we start creating a sample project that contains a map activity.
If we use Android Studio (as i suggest) it is very simple and fast.
Create Android Map project in Android StudioThe first step is creating a google map project in Android. As always, we select File->New project and after inserting some project information we land to this page:
Now select Google Map Activity. Android Studio will create all the things to handle google map in our project. The last thing to do is to add the key to use the map. If you look in the files inside the project you will find the way to create your debug key. Once you have the key, it is time to use the map.
