AnyMaps

Build status

AnyMaps allows you to use the same API for different maps providers without the need to adjust existing Google Maps implementation (apart from changing the package name).

We are relying on this library in car2go to allow customers without Google Play Services to use our product.

Features

  • Does not depend on any map provider - you can even use it without Google Maps.
  • Map provider can be changed at runtime.
  • Easy to extend. New providers can be added without changing the existing code.
  • Map providers supported out of the box: Google Maps, OpenStreet maps, Baidu maps.

Add it to your project

Step one

Add jitpack.io to list of your repositories.

repositories {
  maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
}

Step two

Choose which kinds of maps you want to use and add the latest version to your project.

// Required for all projects
compile 'com.github.car2go.AnyMaps:anymaps-base:x.y.z'
 
// [Optional] Google Maps
compile 'com.github.car2go.AnyMaps:anymaps-google:x.y.z'
compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-maps:x.y.z'
 
// [Optional] OpenStreet maps
compile 'com.github.car2go.AnyMaps:anymaps-osm:x.y.z'
 
// [Optional] Baidu maps
compile 'com.github.car2go.AnyMaps:anymaps-baidu:x.y.z'

Depending on the maps which you choose you will need to add API keys to your AndroidManifest (the same way as you would do it without using AnyMaps). For example, for Google Maps it would be:

<application>
    
    <meta-data 
        android:name="com.google.android.geo.API_KEY" 
        android:value="Your API key"/>
    
</application>

Step three

Add view to your layout.

<!-- There is a MapView implementation for each kind of Map. This example shows Google Maps. -->
<com.car2go.maps.google.MapView
        android:id="@+id/map_view"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"/>

And then call onCreate, onResume, onPause, onSaveInstanceState, onDestroy and onLowMemory in your Activity. Check the example app for more details.

And you are good to go!
