MapQuest Maps Android SDK

Points of Interest

POI Selected

Mapquest Map styles often will show a point-of-interest (POI) on the map. You may want to be able to allow the user to click on the POI and do something with that - for example show information about that POI, navigate to the POI, or just show a bubble annotation.

mMapView.getMapAsync(mapboxMap -> {
	mMapboxMap = mapboxMap;
	mMapboxMapTrafficPresenter = new MapboxMapTrafficPresenter(mMapboxMap, mMapView);

      mMapView.setPOIOnMapSelectedListener(poiOnMapList -> {
          PoiOnMapData selectedPOI = poiOnMapList.get(0);
          showMarkerForPOI(selectedPOI);
      });
});

Shows a info panel when a POI is touched

private void showMarkerForPOI(PoiOnMapData selectedPOI) {
    //Make a transparent marker
    Bitmap.Config conf = Bitmap.Config.ARGB_8888; // see other conf types
    Bitmap transparent = Bitmap.createBitmap(1, 1, conf); // this creates a transparent bitmap

    IconFactory iconFactory = IconFactory.getInstance(MainActivity.this);

    MarkerOptions markerOptions = new MarkerOptions();
    markerOptions.position(MBLatLngUtil.fromMQLatLng(selectedPOI.getLatLng()));
    markerOptions.title(selectedPOI.getName());
    markerOptions.setIcon(iconFactory.fromBitmap(transparent));

    for (Marker marker : mPOIMarkers) {
        mMapboxMap.removeMarker(marker);
    }

    Marker marker = mMapboxMap.addMarker(markerOptions);
    mPOIMarkers.add(marker);
    mMapboxMap.selectMarker(marker);
}
