Search on Map

Postby Chab » Wed Sep 08, 2010 3:16 am

Hi,

I saw that this topic is quite frequent, but none are effectively answered.
So I'm gonna give it a try :)

I'd like the user of my app to be able to search for a location on a map, and to store it somewhere then. For this, I thought of 2 different solutions :

1 - Create my own MapView, and get the place he's looking for using GeoCoder.getFromLocationName(). However, this research doesn't work well. For instance, if I try to find Pizzeria around where I am, it doesn't give me any answer...

2- Start the native Google Maps activity (which performs quite good search) and get the results directly from this second app. However, I can't find a way to do this...


I also saw someone mentioning using the online Maps with Http, but I don't have any idea of how to do this.

Thank you very much for your help.

Hi all,

I found that : http://code.google.com/intl/fr/apis/map ... geocoding/
It seems like this would give accurate results. However, I don't know if I have the right to use this knowing that I will probably publish the app on the market and eventually sell it (... well probably not).

Does anyone have any clue ?
