MapwizeSDK on Android

The Mapwize Android SDK allows you to add indoor maps and way finding in your Android apps. After your map has been created in Mapwize Studio, you can use this SDK to display the map in your app and let the user interact with it.

This SDK only comes with the core MapView and API and is intended for the advanced Mapwize integrations. For a first integration of Mapwize in your project, please consider Mapwize UI and Mapwize UI Documentation.

Open-source Mapwize UI

If you are looking for a fully featured and ready to use Fragment to add Mapwize Indoor Maps and Navigation in your Android app, have a look at Mapwize UI and Mapwize UI Documentation. This open-source project enriches the core SDK with interfaces for search and directions, that you can use as is or modify to your taste.

We ourselves are using Mapwize UI to build the Mapwize app available on Google Play store.

Compatibility

MapwizeSDK is compatible with Android api 21 and above.

Adding Mapwize to your project

In your root build.gradle file, add the following maven repositories

repositories {
    repositories {
        ...
        maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
        maven { url "https://maven.mapwize.io"}
    }
}

In the build.gradle file of your app, add the Mapwize dependency.

dependencies {
  implementation ("io.mapwize.sdk:mapwize-sdk:{lib-version}") {
      transitive = true
  }
}

As Mapbox is now compatible with java 8, you have to add those lines to the build.gradle in order to avoid errors at start.

compileOptions {
    sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
    targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
}

Mapwize API Key

You'll need a Mapwize API key to load the map and allow API requests. To get your own Mapwize API key, sign up for a free account at mapwize.io. Then within the Mapwize Studio, navigate to "API Keys" on the side menu.

In your MyApplication class, you need to initialize the MapwizeConfiguration in the onCreate method.

public class MyApplication  extends Application {
    @Override
    public void onCreate() {
        super.onCreate();
        MapwizeConfiguration config = new MapwizeConfiguration.Builder(this, "YOUR_API_KEY").build();
        MapwizeConfiguration.start(config);
    }
}

Please make sure that your MyApplication class is defined in your AndroidManifest.xml

<application
        ...
        android:name=".MyApplication">
        ...
</application>

Configuring the outdoor map

Mapwize is using Mapbox for the outdoor map. There are 2 options regarding the outdoor:

Adding your first map

You can either inflate MapwizeView using an XML layout or instantiate it programmatically.

    mapwizeView.onLowMemory();
  }

  @Override
  public void onDestroy() {
    mapwizeView.onDestroy();
    super.onDestroy();
  }
}

Life Cycle

In order to work properly, the MapwizeView needs to know about the life cycle of the related activity. Make sure to implement all life cycle methods : onStart, onResume, onPause, onStop, onSaveInstanceState, onLowMemory, onDestroy.

MapActivity

As the loading of the map can take some time, especially when large venues need to be loaded, it is advised to keep the map active when the screen is rotating or resizing instead of destroying and recreating it. To do so, the attribute android:configChanges="orientation|sreenSize" can be added to the Activity definition in the AndroidManifest.xml.

<activity
    android:name=".MapActivity"
    android:configChanges="orientation|screenSize">
    ...
</activity>

Mapwize map options

The map can be loaded with the following options available in the MapwizeMapOptions class:

All options can be used in your XML layout file.
It is also possible to specify a main color to tint all the controls on the map. To do so, add mapwize_main_color in value/colors in your app.

Changing api key at runtime

In some cases, you may want to display a map using a different API key than the one used at initialization. For example, you have displayed a first map for an organization A and you want to display another map for an organization B.
In these cases, you must use the MapwizeConfiguration#Builder that returns a MapwizeConfiguration object. Once you have your MapwizeConfiguration, you can use it in every Mapwize class that needs this object.

Note : If you want to inflate MapwizeView from an xml file, you have to use the MapwizeConfiguratio singleton.

Listeners

Listeners are provided for all kinds of events, from map click and venueEnter to FloorChange. Check the javadoc for more details.

Click event

In order to react to click events on the map, Mapwize provides an object that helps you know on which object the user clicked. It can be a venue, a place or mapwize coordinates.

It is represented with 3 event types :

public final static int MAP_CLICK = 0;  // The user clicked on the map
public final static int PLACE_CLICK = 1;// The user clicked on a place
public final static int VENUE_CLICK = 2;// The user clicked on a venue

The following attributes can be retrieved :

int eventType;              // Enum, see above
LatLngFloor latLngFloor;    // The latLngFloor at which the click was made. The latitude and longitudes are always set, but the floor can be null. Available for all event types.
PlacePreview placePreview;                // Not null if eventType == PLACE_CLICK
VenuePreview venuePreview;                // Not null if eventType == VENUE_CLICK

A typical way to handle those event :

mapwizeMap.setOnClickListener(event -> {
    switch (event.getEventType()) {
        case ClickEvent.MAP_CLICK:
            LatLngFloor llf = event.getLatLngFloor()
            // Do something with LatLngFloor
            break;
        case ClickEvent.PLACE_CLICK:
            PlacePreview placePreview = event.getPlacePreview()
            // Do something with place
            break;
        case ClickEvent.VENUE_CLICK:
            VenuePreview venuePreview = event.getVenuePreview())
            // Do something with venue
            break;
        }
});

Indoor Location

Displaying the user's location on the map is done by connecting an IndoorLocationProvider to Mapwize.

There are many IndoorLocation providers freely available as part of the IndoorLocation open-source framework.

If you can't find a corresponding provider to fit your needs, contact us at support@mapwize.io or build your own starting from the base classes.

To set the IndoorLocationProvider on the MapwizeMap:

public void setIndoorLocationProvider(@NonNull IndoorLocationProvider provider);
public void setIndoorLocationProvider(@NonNull IndoorLocationProvider provider, LocationComponentOptions userOnfloorOptions, LocationComponentOptions userOutOfFloorOptions, boolean showUserHeading);

To learn more about the LocationComponentOptions see Mabpox user location customization,
Our default values are :

onFloorLocationComponentOptions = LocationComponentOptions.builder(mapView.getContext())
.elevation(5)
.accuracyAlpha(.0f)                                     // Hide the accuracy
.accuracyColor(Color.parseColor(mainColor))             // Use the main color (useless cause alpha = 0)
.foregroundTintColor(Color.parseColor(mainColor))       // Use the main color for the forground
.bearingTintColor(Color.parseColor(mainColor))          // Use the main color for the heading
.foregroundStaleTintColor(Color.parseColor(mainColor))  // Use the main color if the user location does not change for a while
.trackingGesturesManagement(true)                       // Allow the override of touch event action
.trackingAnimationDurationMultiplier(0.5f)              // Change the animation duration when location change
.trackingInitialMoveThreshold(100)                      // Allow the user to touch the screen without removing the follow user mode
.trackingMultiFingerMoveThreshold(100)                  // Allow the user to multiple gesture without removing the follow user mode
.build();

outOfFloorLocationComponentOptions = LocationComponentOptions.builder(mapView.getContext())
.elevation(5)
.accuracyAlpha(.3f)
.accuracyColor(Color.GRAY)
.foregroundTintColor(Color.GRAY)
.bearingTintColor(Color.GRAY)
.foregroundStaleTintColor(Color.GRAY)
.trackingAnimationDurationMultiplier(0.5f)
.trackingInitialMoveThreshold(100)
.trackingMultiFingerMoveThreshold(100)
.build();

If you want to manually set the user location, you can use the ManualIndoorLocationProvider.

You can retrieve the current user position on the map using IndoorLocation getUserPosition() and the user heading using Double getUserHeading() methods.

There is no listeners provided for the user's new location changes. Subscribe to the IndoorLocationProvider's listener instead.

The user's heading is also displayed on the map as an arrow from the user position.

FollowUserMode

You can use the follow user mode feature to automatically move the map as the user location changes.

3 modes are provided by FollowUserMode enum class :

You can retrieve the current mode using the FollowUserMode getFollowUserMode() method and you can set it using

public void setFollowUserMode(FollowUserMode followMode)

The FollowUserMode is automatically set to NONE when the user manually moves the map or changes the floor.

Venues

Indoor maps are defined inside venues. The map will automatically enter in a venue when the zoom is sufficient, and exit the venue when the map is moved away. Only one venue can be open at a time.

The currently displayed venue can be retrieved using the getVenue method

public Venue getVenue();

The method returns null if no venue is displayed on the map. Listeners are available to listen to enter and exit venues' events.

Universes

Venues can have multiple universes. Universes are like views. In Mapwize Studio, it is possible to define which elements are displayed in which universe and define security policies for each of them.

When a venue is displayed, the method Universe getUniverse() will return the currently displayed universe for the current venue.

You can set and get the universe for each venue using

public void setUniverse(@NonNull Universe universe);
public void setUniverseForVenue(@NonNull Universe universe, @NonNull Venue venue);
public Universe getUniverseForVenue(@NonNull Venue venue);

Floors

Venues usually have multiple floors. Floors are identified by a Double and can be decimal.

When a venue is displayed, the method Floor getFloor() will return the currently displayed floor for that venue and List<Floor> getFloors() will return the list of active floors for that venue. A floor is considered active if the geometry of one layer of that floor is intersecting with the visible region on the screen.

You can change the floor using

public void setFloorForVenue(@NonNull Double floor, @NonNull Venue venue);
public void setFloor(Double floor);

The OnFloorWillChange event is fired when the SDK starts loading floor content.
The OnFloorChange event is fired when the floor data are loaded.
The OnFloorsChange event is fired when the list of active floors changes, which may or may not happen at venue enter, venue exit or universe change.

Languages

The title of the places that are displayed on the map can be translated to multiple languages and you can control what language is used.

Firstly, you can set the preferred language of the user. By default, titles will be displayed in the preferred language if available in the venue. Otherwise, the main language of the venue is used.

public void setPreferredLanguage(@NonNull String language);
public String getPreferredLanguage();

It is also possible to specify what language to use for a specific venue and get the displayed language for the current venue.

public void setLanguageForVenue(@NonNull String language, @NonNull Venue venue);
public String getLanguage();

Adding markers

Markers are a convenient way to add simple pins on the map.

Mapwize Markers are not attached to a specific venue and will be displayed even if the venue is not visible.

If you want to add more complex annotations on the map, you have all the power of Mapbox at your disposal. Have a look at their documentation

By default, the image used for the pin is the standard Mapwize pin. However, you can specify your own using a Mapbox Icon.

Marker addMarker(@NonNull LatLngFloor latLngFloor);
Marker addMarker(@NonNull LatLngFloor latLngFloor, @NonNull String markerIconName);
Marker addMarker(@NonNull Place place);
Marker addMarker(@NonNull Place place, @NonNull String markerIconName);
void addMarkers(@NonNull Placelist placelist, @NonNull OnMarkersAdded callback);
void addMarker(@NonNull Placelist placelist, @NonNull String markerIconName, @NonNull OnMarkersAdded callback);
void removeMarker(@NonNull Marker markerCoordinate);

interface OnMarkersAdded<T> {
    void getMarkersAsync(T markers);
}

Promoting places

The title of places are displayed based on the zoom level. The objective is to display as many as possible without having collisions. By default, the order specified in Mapwize Studio is used to define which place is displayed first.

However, there are situations where you would like to dynamically change the order. For example, if the user clicks on a place and you display some information about it, you might want to make sure that the title of that place stay displayed with different zoom levels. Basically, you want to promote that place to the first position.

Promoting places make them be displayed on top of other places on the rendering. Of course, the collision mechanism still apply if two promoted places collide, so only the first place in the promoted places list will be displayed on top. Also, promoted places are only shown on their floor and only when their venue are visible.

void addPromotedPlace(@NonNull Place place);
void addPromotedPlaces(@NonNull List<Place> places);
void addPromotedPlaces(@NonNull Placelist placelist, @NonNull OnPlacesPromoted callback);
void removePromotedPlace(@NonNull Place place);
void removePromotedPlaces(@NonNull List<Place> places);
void removePromotedPlaces(@NonNull Placelist placelist);
void removePromotedPlaces();

interface OnPlacesPromoted {
    void getPlacesAsync(@NonNull List<Place> places);
}

Showing Direction

To display directions on the map, the first step is to compute them then you can show them. To compute the direction, you'll need to use the API methods to get a Direction object as described in the API section.

void getDirection(@NonNull DirectionPoint from,
                  @NonNull DirectionPoint to,
                  DirectionMode directionMode,
                  @NonNull final ApiCallback<Direction> callback);

Once you have a Direction object, you can display it on the map using

public void setDirection(@NonNull Direction direction);
public void setDirection(@NonNull Direction direction, @NonNull DirectionOptions options);

The first method will use default DirectionOptions.

Here is the list of options with their default value:

String startMarkerIconName = null;
String endMarkerIconName = "mapwize_default_marker_icon";
boolean displayStartMarker = false;
boolean displayEndMarker = true;
boolean centerOnStart = true;
boolean displayStartingFloor = true;

You can retrieve the displayed direction using

public Direction getDirection();

Please note that the direction will only be available after the navigationDidStart listener is fired.

And you can remove the direction by setting it to null or by using

public void removeDirection();

Showing Navigation (Dynamic direction)

Navigation is used to display a direction between the user location to her destination.

void startNavigation(@NonNull DirectionPoint to, DirectionMode directionMode, @NonNull DirectionOptions options, @NonNull OnNavigationUpdateListener onNavigationUpdateListener) throws NavigationException;

void stopNavigation();

public interface OnNavigationUpdateListener {
    boolean shouldRecomputeNavigation(@NonNull NavigationInfo navigationInfo);
    void navigationWillStart();
    void navigationDidStart();
}

Mapwize can recompute the IndoorLocation whenever the user is too far from the direction path shown on the map.
You can use NavigationInfo object provided by shouldRecomputeNavigation to recompute direction if needed.

NavigationInfo contains 3 parameters :

Using the NavigationInfo object in the shouldRecomputeNavagation method, you can tell the SDK to recompute the Direction by returning true.

Styling places

If you want to show that a meeting room is available, then, dynamic styling of places is what you are looking for.

You can overwrite the style of any place at any time using the setPlaceStyle function. Set the style to null to return to the default style.

void setPlaceStyle(@NonNull Place place, @Nullable Style style);
void setPlaceStyleWithId(@NonNull String placeId, @Nullable Style style);
void setPlacesStyleWithIds(@NonNull Map<String, Style> styleByPlaceId);
void setPlacesStyle(@NonNull Map<Place, Style> styleByPlace);
void setPlaceStyle(@NonNull List<Place> places, @Nullable Style style);
void removeAllCustomStyle();

The available attributes for the style are

Offline

Maps can be made available offline using the OfflineManager. When offline, the following features are available:

Data is downloaded for specific universes of specific venues.

If a venue/universe has been downloaded offline, all the data for that venue/universe will come from the local database regardless the network availability. Changes made to the venue map on Mapwize Studio will not be available in the app until a new download is done. It is the developer's responsibility to trigger venue re-downloads.

To limit the size of the data downloaded on the device, it is possible to specify a minZoom and a maxZoom. For raster layers, only the tiles in that zoom range will be downloaded. The map can still be seen at any zoom level but graphics might appear pixelated. By default, minZoom = 16 and maxZoom = 21 or 23 depending on the surface of the venue. For raster layers, the size of zoom n+1 is usually about 4x the size of the zoom n. When a minZoom and maxZoom have been used for a venue/universe, they cannot be changed. The only option is to delete the offlineRegion and download it again with the new parameters.

MapwizeOfflineManager

To download content for a specific universe of a specific venue and make that veenue/univrse available offline, use downloadData:

public void downloadData(Venue venue, Universe universe, DownloadTaskListener listener)
public void downloadData(Venue venue, Universe universe, int minZoom, int maxZoom, DownloadTaskListener listener)

To update the local data for a venue, the same downloadData method can be used again.

You can also use the following method to check if an update is available

 public void checkForUpdate(@NonNull OfflineRegion offlineRegion, @NonNull CheckForUpdateCallback callback)

then, you can use this method to update it

public void updateData(OfflineRegion offlineRegion, DownloadTaskListener listener)

If a venue/universe does not need to be offline anymore, the removeData method can be used to delete all the offline data from database and filesystem.

public void removeData(@NonNull OfflineRegion offlineRegion, @NonNull RemoveDataCallback callback)

Note: After removing or downloading data, displayed maps need to be refreshed using MapwizeMap#refresh(Venue venue, Universe universe). Otherwise, the map might not display properly or might be inconsistent.

The following methods allow you to check which venues and universes are available offline.

public boolean hasOfflineRegion(Venue venue, Universe universe)

public OfflineRegion getOfflineRegion(Venue venue, Universe universe)

public List<OfflineRegion> getOfflineRegions()

API

A complete set of functions are available to query raw Mapwize objects.

Some API functions are available offline if the venue and universe was downloaded using the MapwizeOfflineManager.

The API behavior is as follows:

Parameters

ApiFilter

private final String venueId;
private final String universeId;
private final Boolean isVisible;
private final String alias;
private final String name;

public static void getDirection(@NonNull DirectionPoint from, @NonNull DirectionPoint to, boolean isAccessible, @NonNull ApiCallback<Direction> callback);

Distances

Distances are not available offline.

You can get a distance list between a 'from' point to a list of 'to' points using :

 public static void getDistances(@NonNull DirectionPoint from, @NonNull List<DirectionPoint> to, boolean isAccessible, boolean sortByTraveltime, @NonNull ApiCallback<DistanceResponse> callback)

Searches

The offline search does not return the same results as the online search.

public static void search(@NonNull SearchParams params, @NonNull ApiCallback<List<MapwizeObject>> callback)

Using a custom Mapwize Server

If you are using a custom instance of Mapwize server you have to set the server URL in your MapwizeConfiguration.

The default parameters are :

serverScheme = "https";
serverHost = "api.mapwize.io";
serverApiPath = "v1/";

Telemetry

Mapwize Telemetry reports some details about the map usage in your application so that you can get usage statistics about your maps. Analytics are stored in an anonymous way according to our Privacy Policy. The user location is NEVER logged as part of the Telemetry logged data.

Telemetry is enable by default but you can deactivate it using the MapwizeConfiguration.Builder().telemetryEnabled(false) method.

Events are stored in local storage and sent in batch to Mapwize servers. At the moment, the following events are logged :

Migrating from 3.X.X to 3.2.0


Version 3.2.0 brings two main changes for developers. The offline manager now makes use of the new OfflineRegion object and the Direction Api now uses the DirectionMode feature recently added on Mapwize.

OfflineManager


The download methods handles the Mapbox download automatically. The skipMapboxDownload argument has been removed.

When a download succeeds, it now returns an OfflineRegion object (instead of nothing before). This OfflineRegion object can be retrieved later using the getOfflineRegions methods and it contains information about the downloaded content (venueId, universeId, minZoom and maxZoom).

The OfflineRegion replaces the venue, universe pair that was used before.

The following methods have been removed:

boolean isVenueUniverseOffline(Venue venue, Universe universe)
List<Venue> getOfflineVenues()
List<Universe> getOfflineUniverses(Venue venue)


The offline manager provides methods to check if an update is available for an OfflineRegion, to update its data or to remove the OfflineRegion. Those operations cannot be done using a venue, universe pair anymore.

DirectionMode


In the previous versions, you could use the isAccessible parameter in the direction API to search for an accessible direction. IsAccessible was convenient but limiting. We are now adding a more general concept in order to provide more customizable direction modes in your venue.

DirectionMode is configured on Mapwize Studio for each venue/universe. Because of that, the SDK does not know what direction modes are available before entering in a venue.

There are two way to retrieve the available direction modes:

When you have your direction modes, you can use one of them to make a direction request.

Direction modes have a type. The accessible directions you already have configured in the Studio have been automatically migrated to a mode with type ACCESSIBLE.

For convenience, the old direction api method with the isAccessible parameter have been kept but we encourage you to make the change as soon as you can. The offline direction engine no longer does support the isAccessible parameter and the request will always be sent to the server.
