[Android] Google Maps v2 - set both my location and zoom in


Answers

It's possible to change location, zoom, bearing and tilt all in one go. It's also possible to set the duration on the animateCamera() call.

CameraPosition cameraPosition = new CameraPosition.Builder()
    .target(MOUNTAIN_VIEW)      // Sets the center of the map to Mountain View
    .zoom(17)                   // Sets the zoom
    .bearing(90)                // Sets the orientation of the camera to east
    .tilt(30)                   // Sets the tilt of the camera to 30 degrees
    .build();                   // Creates a CameraPosition from the builder
map.animateCamera(CameraUpdateFactory.newCameraPosition(cameraPosition));

Have a look at the docs here:

Question

My question is, does anyone know how to set google maps up, to open up both my location and in a zoomed in view?

Currently, the main view opens up to Africa, all the way zoomed out.

And so I have been searching for days now, and all I can find are:

1) You cannot animate two things (like zoom in and go to my location) in one google map? So if I can figure out how to set the zoom before I set the animate, then this problem would be solved. That tend tend to be the issue, you can change one, but not both.

2) I have found other classes that might be useful, but there is no help on how to set up the code so the class can manipulate the google map.

This is the code I have been holding on to so far, some works, some does not. Some I thought might be useful later on.

package com.MYWEBSITE.www;

import com.google.android.gms.maps.CameraUpdateFactory;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.GoogleMap;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.SupportMapFragment;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.model.LatLng;
import android.content.Context;
import android.location.Criteria;
import android.location.Location;
import android.location.LocationManager;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v4.app.FragmentActivity;
import android.view.Menu;

public class MainActivity extends FragmentActivity {
private GoogleMap map;  

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.main_layout);

    map = ((SupportMapFragment) getSupportFragmentManager().findFragmentById(R.id.map)).getMap();
    map.setMyLocationEnabled(true);

    //LocationSource a = (LocationSource) getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);
    //LocationManager b = (LocationManager) getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);
    //map.setLocationSource(a);

    Criteria criteria = new Criteria();
    LocationManager locationManager = (LocationManager) getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);
    String provider = locationManager.getBestProvider(criteria, false);
    Location location = locationManager.getLastKnownLocation(provider);
    double lat =  location.getLatitude();
    double lng = location.getLongitude();
    LatLng coordinate = new LatLng(lat, lng);

    //CameraPosition.Builder x = CameraPosition.builder();
    //x.target(coordinate);
    //x.zoom(13);

    //Projection proj = map.getProjection();
    //Point focus = proj.toScreenLocation(coordinate);

    //map.animateCamera(CameraUpdateFactory.newLatLng(coordinate));
    map.animateCamera(CameraUpdateFactory.zoomBy(13));
    //map.moveCamera(CameraUpdateFactory.newLatLng(coordinate));


    ////LatLngBounds bounds = mMap.getProjection().getVisibleRegion().latLngBounds;
}
}



1.Add xml code in your layout for displaying maps.

2.Enable google maps api then get api key place that below.

<fragment
                   android:id="@+id/map"
               android:name="com.google.android.gms.maps.MapFragment"
                    android:layout_width="match_parent"
                    android:value="ADD-API-KEY"
                    android:layout_height="250dp"
                    tools:layout="@layout/newmaplayout" />
        <ImageView
            android:id="@+id/transparent_image"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="match_parent"
            android:src="@color/transparent" />

3.Add this code in oncreate.

 MapFragment mapFragment = (MapFragment) getFragmentManager().findFragmentById(R.id.map);
    mapFragment.getMapAsync(UpadateProfile.this);

4.Add this code after oncreate. then access current location with marker placed in that

@Override
public void onMapReady(GoogleMap rmap) {
    DO WHATEVER YOU WANT WITH GOOGLEMAP
    map = rmap;
    setUpMap();
}
public void setUpMap() {
    map.setMapType(GoogleMap.MAP_TYPE_HYBRID);
  map.setMyLocationEnabled(true);
    map.setTrafficEnabled(true);
    map.setIndoorEnabled(true);
    map.getCameraPosition();
    map.setBuildingsEnabled(true);
    map.getUiSettings().setZoomControlsEnabled(true);
    markerOptions = new MarkerOptions();
    markerOptions.title("Outlet Location");
    map.setOnMapClickListener(new GoogleMap.OnMapClickListener() {
        @Override
        public void onMapClick(LatLng point) {
            map.clear();
            markerOptions.position(point);
            map.animateCamera(CameraUpdateFactory.newLatLng(point));
            map.addMarker(markerOptions);
            String all_vals = String.valueOf(point);
            String[] separated = all_vals.split(":");
            String latlng[] = separated[1].split(",");
            MyLat = Double.parseDouble(latlng[0].trim().substring(1));
            MyLong = Double.parseDouble(latlng[1].substring(0,latlng[1].length()-1));
            markerOptions.title("Outlet Location");
            getLocation(MyLat,MyLong);
        }
    });
}
public void getLocation(double lat, double lng) {
    Geocoder geocoder = new Geocoder(UpadateProfile.this, Locale.getDefault());
    try {
        List<Address> addresses = geocoder.getFromLocation(lat, lng, 1);
   } catch (IOException e) {
         TODO Auto-generated catch block
        e.printStackTrace();
        Toast.makeText(this,e.getMessage(),Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
    }
}
@Override
public void onLocationChanged(Location location) {
}
@Override
public void onStatusChanged(String provider, int status, Bundle extras) {
}
@Override
public void onProviderEnabled(String provider) {
}
@Override
public void onProviderDisabled(String provider) {
}



Its a late answer but I think it will help. Use this method:

protected void zoomMapInitial(LatLng finalPlace, LatLng currenLoc) {
    try {
        int padding = 200; // Space (in px) between bounding box edges and view edges (applied to all four sides of the bounding box)
        LatLngBounds.Builder bc = new LatLngBounds.Builder();

        bc.include(finalPlace);
        bc.include(currenLoc);
        googleMap.moveCamera(CameraUpdateFactory.newLatLngBounds(bc.build(), padding));
    } catch (Exception e) {
        e.printStackTrace();
    }
}

Use this method after loading the map. Cheers!




You cannot animate two things (like zoom in and go to my location) in one google map.
So use move and animate Camera to zoom

googleMapVar.moveCamera(CameraUpdateFactory.newLatLng(LocLtdLgdVar));
googleMapVar.animateCamera(CameraUpdateFactory.zoomTo(10));



Try in this way -

public class SummaryMapActivity extends FragmentActivity implements LocationListener{

 private GoogleMap mMap;
 private LocationManager locationManager;
 private static final long MIN_TIME = 400;
 private static final float MIN_DISTANCE = 1000;

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.summary_mapview);

    if (mMap == null) {
        // Try to obtain the map from the SupportMapFragment.
        mMap = ((SupportMapFragment) getSupportFragmentManager().findFragmentById(R.id.map))
                .getMap();
        // Check if we were successful in obtaining the map.
        if (mMap != null) {
            mMap.addMarker(new MarkerOptions().position(new LatLng(0, 0)).title("Marker"));
        }
    }
    mMap.setMyLocationEnabled(true);

    locationManager = (LocationManager) getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);
    locationManager.requestLocationUpdates(LocationManager.NETWORK_PROVIDER, MIN_TIME, MIN_DISTANCE, this); 


}

@Override
public void onLocationChanged(Location location) {
    LatLng latLng = new LatLng(location.getLatitude(), location.getLongitude());
    CameraUpdate cameraUpdate = CameraUpdateFactory.newLatLngZoom(latLng, 15);
    mMap.animateCamera(cameraUpdate);
    locationManager.removeUpdates(this);

}

@Override
public void onProviderDisabled(String provider) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub

}

@Override
public void onProviderEnabled(String provider) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub

}

@Override
public void onStatusChanged(String provider, int status, Bundle extras) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub

}

}
