Can it be determined that where a person is i.e is he walking ? is he in elevator ? or is he climbing up the stairs ? using android's accelerometer or is there any other way to calculate such in android ?
How do I use Google Maps app to calculate the driving time and distance from Chicago to Los Angeles? *ONLY* Chicago to Los Angeles.... not NYC-Chicago-LA
I can do this very easily using my Macbook Pro by firing up Google Maps in Chrome browser.(or any browser)
However, I just can't figure out how to do this using the Google Maps app on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Sure, I can use use a browser to do this, but I want to do it inside the Google Maps app for Android.
I am able to parse XML using SAX Parser and able to display the points in text view. But now I want the points to be displayed on the map.The XML Contains tags for latitude and longitude. I want to read the latitiudes and longitudes and display them on map .
Is there any way to get the driving time between to geopoints? I want to create an algorithm that calculates the time from the users location to several destinations and then chooses the shortest (by time).
I'm trying to create an app to plot our mountain bike trails on a Google map. I've got the Google map part working. However, once I try to plot a couple of geopoints and connect them it does displays the geopoints and connects them, but the Google map stops displaying. Only grey tiles show. Here is my code before I plot the points which works. import android.graphics.Canvas;
I want to make a apps that check what's the nearest place from where the user is. I can easily get the location of the user and I have a list of places with latitude and longitude. What would be the best way to know the nearest place of the list against the current position. I could not find anything in the google APIs. I am worried I need to resort to my calculate and have to do math to calculate it.
I need in my Android Application the Distance and the Driving Time between Two cities.Is there a possibility to calculate this things for example via Google Navigator or Google Maps? (the driving distance, not the air-line distance)
I'm trying to generate some points at random distances away from a fixed point using GPS.How can I add distance in meters to a GPS coordinate?I've looked at UTM to GPS conversion but is there a simpler method to achieve this?I'm working on Android platform just in case.
1) I have not been able to find out in which units Location.distance Between receives the latitude and longitude. Is it degrees or micro degrees? Whats the unit for the distance returned? 2) In windows XP using Eclipse 3.3.2. Emulator does not send coordinates properly. Either it by hand or by loading a gpx file the location Listener is not invoked. This same code I have tried it in Ubuntu and works fine. Does someone know how can I solve this? In the office there is no linux installed and I can take my personal laptop.
I am implementing an application to search for nearest local venues from a gps coordinates database.
I am using the Location class distanceTo() function to calculate distance between two location the current one and the one from the database.
This work fine and i am able to use this distance to calculate proximity in the rest of my app, but the distance it self is not apparently in meters i am getting result like 4134801.4 i am sure that the distance is 3200meters in this case.
When I develop an Android map application, I want to draw a circle on the map whose radius is 1 meter. As you known, I can't draw 1 meter directly, I should convert 1 meter to the distance of two pixels depend on the zoom level. How to I convert it, is there anything API I can use.
Canvas.draw(x, y, radius), what value should I put to this method ?
I can easily find long/lat of my current location. Once I do that, I would like to find long/lat information for locations at distance X from y current location. Does anyone have suggestion(s) on how to do this using Android SDK methods?
I am wondering if the Location.distanceTo method will use the accuracy field of the Location object when approximates the location, or do I have to add by my own the errors to these fields. The usage is to compare the distance against a proximity value.
Float dist=currentLocation.distanceTo(loc2); Would this be if (dist<100meters) or
I need to calculate a rotation vector out of the data i get from Sensor.TYPE_ORIENTATION. The sensor data is defined like this: the values have to be recalculated to become a correct 3d position: values: Azimuth, angle between the magnetic north direction and the Y axis, around the Z axis (0 to 359). 0=North, 90=East, 180=South, 270=West values: Pitch, rotation around X axis (-180 to 180), with positive values when the z-axis moves toward the y-axis. values: Roll, rotation around Y axis (-90 to 90), with positive values when the x-axis moves away from the z-axis need all three values like the Z axis value (from 0 to 360 degree). I tried a lot but cant figure out how to do this :/ So i bet there is a simple solution how to recall the values of sensor.TYPE_ORIENTATION to make them a 3d rotation vector, but i just dont know how to do it. If you know the answer please tell me. Code...
