EarthView Android Library

A simple and easy to use API to integrate EarthView with Google into your android application.

Showcase

Advanced Demo Application (Beta)

To showcase the different possibilities of this library I've created a demo 'Wallpaper Application'. You can find the source for this application in the ps-app/ folder. In case you want to install the Application, feel free to do so! It's on Google Play™

!! Translators needed !!

You can help translating EarthViewer into your native language via OneSkyApp: Contribute to EarthViewer

Advanced Demo Screenshot

Simple Demo Application

You can find a simple demo application in the app/ folder which you can also download here.

Getting Started

Include the library into your project by adding the following line to your build.gradle: compile 'com.pddstudio:earthview-android:[VERSION]' Note: To make sure you're using the latest version, take a look at the maven badge above

Usage

  • Implement either SingleEarthViewCallback (for a single EarthView) or EarthViewCallback (for multiple EarthViews) into your Activity, Adapter or any other class where you want to load the EarthView's.
  • Get an instance of the EarthView by calling:
EarthView.withGoogle()
  • Fire the event which fit's your needs, you'll get the results through the callback interface you provide in your project.

Fetching a single EarthView

A quick sample to fetch a single EarthView

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity implements SingleEarthViewCallback {

    Button loadBtn;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        Toolbar toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(R.id.toolbar);
        setSupportActionBar(toolbar);

        loadBtn = (Button) findViewById(R.id.load_wall_btn);
        loadBtn.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
         //in case you want to get a random wallpaper
            EarthView.withGoogle().getRandomEarthWallpaper(MainActivity.this);
         //in case you want to get a specific EarthWallpaper
      EarthView.withGoogle().getEarthWallpaper(earthWallpaperIdentifier, this);
            }
        });
    }
    @Override
    public void onStartedLoading() {
        //in case you want to show a loading dialog or anything else
    }

    @Override
    public void onFinishedLoading(EarthWallpaper earthWallpaper) {
        //check whether the result is null or not
        if(earthWallpaper != null) {
            //do whatever you want to do with the EarthWallpaper object
        }
    }


}

Fetching multiple EarthViews

A quick sample to load multiple EarthViews:

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity implements EarthViewCallback {

    Button loadBtn;
   
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        Toolbar toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(R.id.toolbar);
        setSupportActionBar(toolbar);

        loadBtn = (Button) findViewById(R.id.load_wall_btn);
        loadBtn.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
                EarthView.withGoogle().getAllEarthWallpapers(MainActivity.this);
            }
        });
    }

    @Override
    public void onStartedLoading() {
  //in case you want to show a loading dialog or something else you can do this here
    }

    @Override
    public void onItemLoaded(EarthWallpaper earthWallpaper) {
        //just to be sure the result isn't null
        if(earthWallpaper != null) {
  //here you can handle what you want to do with the new item - this event get's fired every time the library has loaded a new EarthView object
        }
    }

    @Override
    public void onFinishedLoading(Collection<EarthWallpaper> earthWallpapers) {
  //here you can stop showing the loading dialog
  //in case you don't want to handle each item seperately the complete Collection of EarthWallpapers is provided here, too 
    }
}

The EarthWallpaper reference sheet

Once you received an EarthWallpaper object through the callback you can get the following information out of it:

  • The EarthView's ID (identifier - similar to the original one)
  • The EarthView's Slug
  • The EarthView's Url (Link to the official Site for this EarthView)
  • The EarthView's Title (Official Title for this EarthView)
  • The EarthView's Latitude
  • The EarthView's Longitude
  • The EarthView's Photo Url (In case you want to load it into an ImageView or save it to your storage)
  • The EarthView's Thumbnail Url (Recommended when fetching a lot of EarthViews - to reduce bandwith)
  • The EarthView's Download Url (The official Url to download this EarthView)
  • The EarthView's Region (Region where this EarthView was taken)
  • The EarthView's Country (The Country this EarthView was taken)
  • The EarthView's Attribution (Copyright information)
  • The EarthView's GoogleMaps Url (To show the direct position of this EarthView)
  • The EarthView's GoogleMaps Title (Can be used for wrapping around the GoogleMaps Url e.g)

All information can be fetched via their get-Methods. You can find more information in the EarthView JavaDoc.
