    Default Information on Java Mapobjects

    Hi All,

    I am new to Java and my class project involves creating a google map like application in Java. We will be doing some more computation on top of it. Since I am new to Java, I have no idea as to where to start. I googled and came across Mapobjects. Is it something that I can use ?
    I dont really know how to go about it , so kindly help!
    Also, we are not allowed to use google api for our project.

    Thanks!

    Hello rain_dew,

    Could you please elaborate on how this application is to be 'like' Google maps. In Java, a Map object is a type of interface, do a little bit of reading and you will quickly find out if they will help or not. Are you using real satellite imagery with superimposed roads that change based on the zoom? I suppose the big question is: How similar does this application have to be to Google maps? What kind of programming experience do you have? That last question is just out of curiosity.

    Is this a java question, or javascript question (as google maps front end is accessed via javascript)? There is a big difference, and these are java forums.

    Do you mean esri's Mapobjects?
    MapObjects | Windows Edition | Overview

    It sounds like a great class project, though presumably you're not 11 years old and have only used Microsoft Word before? If there aren't any complexity-destroying instructions you've omitted to tell us, I would say it sounds extremely difficult.

    What level are you at? You might want to have a look at what they do at OSM:
    OpenStreetMap
    That's a community-edited map. Are you - for a Twenty Questions example - hoping to enter coordinates / attributes yourself and then render / view / zoom your data as beautiful maps?
