MappedIn Android SDK Example

This repo contains a simple example to get you started with the MappedIn Android SDK. Before you can do anything, make sure you have an API key from MappedIn. Talk to your representative to get one. The JavaDocs are available here.


Just include compile 'com.mappedin.sdk:mappedin:0.1.+' from Maven Central. You can also clone this repo and use the pre-configured samples. We recommend you ensure your credentials are working with the Hello World sample before anything else.

Not sure how to use Maven Central? Open your project's build.gradle file, and ensure you have mavenCentral() in your repositories list:

repositories {

Then, add a dependency on the Mappedin SDK. Add compile 'com.mappedin.sdk:mappedin:0.1.+' to the dependencies list in your build.gradle. Your dependencies might look something like this:

dependencies {
    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
    testCompile 'junit:junit:4.12'
    compile ''
    compile 'com.mappedin.sdk:mappedin:0.1.+'

API Quick Start

You can view all the documentation in this project's GitHub page, but here's a quick guide to the key classes you need to just display a Map.


This is the class to start with. It controls all communication with the MappedIn API. First, make sure you have your API key and Secret set in your AndroidManifest.xml like so:

<meta-data android:name="com.mappedin.sdk.Username" android:value="<your key here>"/>
<meta-data android:name="com.mappedin.sdk.Password" android:value="<your secret here>"/>

If you don't know your key and secret, please talk to your mappedin representative to get access.

Once you have your manifest set up correctly, you can begin writing actual code. Instantiate a com.mappedin.sdk.MappedIn object, passing in your application's Context. Then make a call to

mappedin.getVenues( MappedInCallBack<Venue[]> )

This will query the MappedIn servers and if successful will execute the onCompleted function on your MappedInCallBack object with an array of Venues your key has access to. Each Venue will have basic details like the name and logo populated, but not the larger fields like maps and locations.

To get all of the data for a specific venue, call

mappedIn.getVenue(Venue venue, boolean accessible, LocationGenerator locationGenerator, MappedInCallBack<Venue> callback)

with the venue you are interested in. Similar to getVenues, this function will interface with the MappedIn API for you, sending the fully populated Venue to your callback's onComplete when it's done.

You can specify when you want accessible directions or not with the accessible parameter.

A Venue typically has a few different Location types, each with different properties. Passing in a custom LocationGenerator will let you build custom Location objects that have access to those properties. Your mappedin in representative will help you if this applies to you. If not, just pass in null.


The Venue object will contain all information associated with a given venue (once it's been filled in with getVenue). You can find lists of all the Venue's Map, Location, Category, Vortex (connections between Maps like elevators and stairs) and Polygon objects.


The MapView object is a Fragment that controls displaying the actual Map. Just call

mapView.setMap(Map map);

with the map you want to display (available from venue.getMaps()).

That's the basics. Directions, Markers and other features will be covered in a future tutorial, but you can see them in action right now in the Single Venue project.

Mappedin Web Android Sample

There is also a sample app in this repo that demonstrates creating a Web View in an Android application, and displaying Mappedin Web. The example can be found in the webviewsample folder. This example does not use the Android SDK. You will require a Mappedin Web API Key for the sample to function. Please talk to your representative if you need one.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
