google map with xml markers

Postby lortest » Wed Oct 01, 2008 8:17 am

Hello all

This community is better everyday and i have learn a lot here.

I know how to do a google map from xml in php.

I have read and "know" how to a basic map on Android.

My question is is it possible ( i think ofc yes) to do google map with xml marker ( i mean read point position from xml files ).

IF u have any suggestionon how to do that, would be nice.

Thanks in advance

Yes it is, you can parse easily parse xml-data using a SAXParser and then overlay the locations on a MapView. You'll find information on both here on anddev.

search for 'SAXParser' and 'Overlay'.
