A tiling scrollview to display large picture (similar to iOS "CATiledLayer")

branch: master
README.md

Introduction

This Android widget aims to provide a scalable way to display large images (like Metro maps, paintings) while keeping the memory consumption as low as possible.

The source image will be provided in TILES, so that all tiles combined create the full scale image.

Current features:

  • Specify a image pattern to find the tiles
  • Freely navigate through the image using a two dimensional scroll view
  • Load required tiles on demand and non-blocking
  • Zoom levels using multiple levels of tiles
  • Panning, Pinching etc (multitouch gestures), work in progress

Planned features:

  • A way to overlay icons or other widgets at fix points (similar to Google Maps), which should be useful for annotations

Example

<asia.ivity.android.tiledscrollview.TiledScrollView
        android:id="@+id/tiledScrollView"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="fill_parent"
        app:file_pattern="tiger400/crop_%col%_%row%.png"
        app:tile_height="100"
        app:tile_width="100"
        app:image_width="400"
        app:image_height="300"
        app:zoom_buttons="true"
        />

Attributes:

  • file_pattern - specifies the pattern to find the files. Placeholders %col% and %row% are mandatory
  • tile_height & tile_width - specify the tile dimensions. The widget should be able to handle non-fitting images (i.e. if the last tile is smaller then others tiles well)
  • image_height & image_width - image dimensions to support abovementioned functions.
  • zoom_buttons - whether to enable the zoom buttons, default is true.

The attributes are very likely to be reduced and cut. I prefer the widget to be more simple in the long term.

Multiple Zoom Levels

The View supports different zoom levels. You can add them using Java.

final TiledScrollView tiledScrollView = (TiledScrollView) findViewById(R.id.tiledScrollView);

tiledScrollView.addConfigurationSet(TiledScrollView.ZoomLevel.LEVEL_1,
        new ConfigurationSet("tiger800/crop_%col%_%row%.png", 100, 100, 800, 600));

tiledScrollView.addConfigurationSet(TiledScrollView.ZoomLevel.LEVEL_2,
        new ConfigurationSet("tiger1600/crop_%col%_%row%.png", 100, 100, 1600, 1200));
