Create a Google Maps Activity for an Android App in an Android Studio Project
Create a marker on your Map, set the view location in the world when your app is launched, set the location accuracy level of your app.
Get a Google Maps API Key, adjust the restrictions of an API Key
In this 1-hour long project-based course, you will learn how to: • Create a Google Maps Activity in an Android App using Android Studio • Adjust the location accuracy settings of your app, and insert markers in your map • Get a Google Maps API Key to use in your app, and adjust the key restrictions *** You do not need to get a Google Maps API Key to pass the quiz and get the certificate for this project. If you want to get a Google Maps API Key (which is required to make Google Maps function in your app) you will need to set up a free trial google cloud console account as it is through this you would get the key. You do not have to pay anything to have a trial Google Cloud account or to get and use an API Key the way this project uses it, but when you are setting up a google cloud account they do ask you for credit card details for the account to make sure you are not a bot. You do not have to set up a Google Cloud account or get an API Key if you do not want to.*** Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions. Projects in Series 1: 1. Build a Simple App in Android Studio with Java 2.
