I am new here, but not new in the programming field, I would like to know, whether it is possible, how to implement a map (I was thinking about google maps) which will highlight only some specific locations; whenever the user clicks on one of them, the program will get the variable (e.g. the name of the location) and save it into a String.
A wild map appears.
User will see the map of the area, with (let's say) 10 Points Of Interest.
The user can click on one of them, if so, the program will show on a JOptionPane (this is just for testing purposes, to see if the variable is correct) the name of the location (I have chosen before, maybe directly on google maps).
Would it be possible?
Of course, I don't want the code, but just to know if there is another way I should try, or if there are already threads talking about this.
