Hi everybody, I am Chaitanya, I have a requirement, we are developing a project named "smart city" where one can find the entire details of a city such as historical places, hospitals, restaurants and many more. For this we are using images.

What we are thinking is to combine google maps with this. We want to place the map in our application.

Is it possible?

Thank you all in advance. Have a nice day.


Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

Yes.

Google maps provides a Java API which can enable you to use maps in your application.
However, you need to obtain a key from google which is mapped to your domain. More on the key can be found here http://code.google.com/apis/maps/signup.html

Hi Maneesh, thanks for the reply, actually we are working for IBM TGMC(The great mind challenge) contest.

We cant buy a domain. Is it possible without having a domain and getting a key?

Thank you in advance.

Domain is $10 a year. This is from google. You might find something cheaper.

For development purposes you do not need a key, but only for live (hosted version)
You will need to figure out if you can demo on your machine or host it on the web. If you are hosting it you need a key.

Thanks Maneesh, I need to give a demo, can you please tell me where to find examples, I browsed the web, but the examples are not related to web applications.

Thank you in advance.

As of Google Maps API v3, a key is no longer necessary.

Ah! That explains it. The GWT port of maps API which I have been using is pre v3.
