Display a Map

Screenshot of Display A Map App

Description

The Display Map app is the most basic Map app for the [ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android](https://developers.arcgis.com/en/android/). It shows how to inflate a MapView in the layout XML of the activity, create a ArcGISMap with a static Basemap.Type and bind the ArcGISMap to the MapView. By default, this map supports basic zooming and panning operations.

Features

  • ArcGISMap
  • MapView
  • Basemap

Developer Pattern

Create a ArcGISMap with a Basemap.Type and an initial viewpoint.

// inflate MapView from layout
mMapView = (MapView) findViewById(R.id.mapView);
// create a map with the BasemapType topographic
ArcGISMap mMap = new ArcGISMap(Basemap.Type.TOPOGRAPHIC, 34.056295, -117.195800, 16);
// set the map to be displayed in this view
mMapView.setMap(mMap);
