Google Static Maps API

Fluent and clean Java interface for Google Static Maps API.

DEMO APK

Why?

Because using Google Play Services to show a Google Map may be overkill, or simply because Google Play Services are not available (Amazon, I'm looking at you!).

How?

Most of the official API is available under a fluent java interface. You'll find below some example usage, for more details, see the official documentation or look at the demo source.

Basic usage

StaticMap map = new StaticMap().center("NYC").size(320, 240);
load(map.toURL()); // load into your image view

Map Type

new StaticMap().center("NYC").type(HYBRID).size(320, 240);

Markers

Custom colors

 new StaticMap()
    .size(320, 240)
    .marker(Style.BLUE, new GeoPoint("Tour Eiffel"))
    .marker(Style.RED, new GeoPoint("Cathédrale Notre Dame"))
    .marker(Style.GREEN, new GeoPoint("Sacré-Coeur, 75018"))
    .marker(Style.ORANGE, new GeoPoint("Musée du Louvre"))
    .marker(Style.PURPLE, new GeoPoint("Arc de Triomphe"));

Custom icons

new StaticMap()
    .size(320, 240)
    .marker(Style.builder().icon(ICON_URL_GHOSTBUSTER).build(), new GeoPoint(40.7195532,-74.0067987))
    .marker(Style.RED.toBuilder().label('A').build(), new GeoPoint(40.7529234,-73.9827515))
    .marker(Style.GREEN.toBuilder().label('B').build(), new GeoPoint("Columbia University, NYC"));

Path

Line

new StaticMap()
    .size(320, 240)
    .path(Path.Style.builder().color(BLUE).build(),
          new GeoPoint(40.737102,-73.990318),
          new GeoPoint(40.749825,-73.987963),
          new GeoPoint(40.752946,-73.987384),
          new GeoPoint(40.755823,-73.986397));

### Filled
new StaticMap()
    .size(320, 240)
    .path(Path.Style.builder().color(Color.TRANSPARENT).fill(0x66ff0000).build(),
          new GeoPoint("Miami, Florida"),
          new GeoPoint("San Juan, Puerto Rico"),
          new GeoPoint("Bermuda Island"));
