Location Map Viewer

Display geografic information on a map

Display geografic information in a map. It has support for GPX and KML files, as well as the "geo" URI scheme. It can work offline (without Internet/WiFi) once geodata has been downloaded and cached.

Other Android apps can use LocationMapViewer through an Intent interface or through html links like geo:0,0?q=53.0,8.0(Hello) (<a href="geo:0,0?q=53.0,8.0(Hello)">geo:0,0?q=53.0,8.0(Hello)</a>)

Required Android Permissions:

  • INTERNET: to download map data from Open Streetmap Server
  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE and ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: to find out if wifi/internet is online to start downloaded geodata
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE (to cache downloaded map data in local file system and to load gpx/kml-Files to be displayed in the map)
  • ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION and ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION: to display my own location in the map, too
