Draw Polylines on Google Maps in Android using Jetpack Compose

In this article, we will look at drawing Polyline on Google Maps in Android using Jetpack Compose.

Google Maps is used in many Android applications. While using Google Maps there are many modifications that you will get to see while using Maps in this app. When we have used Google Maps in different apps such as OLA and Uber, we will see lines and routes drawn on our Maps.

Polyline 

The next thing that we could do is to draw a line between points. We can use Polyline for that. 

It has only one required parameter and that is the list of latitudes and longitudes. Some other parameters are:

  • clickable: Boolean — boolean indicating if the polyline is clickable or not
  • color: Color — the color of the polyline
  • startCap: Cap — the cap at the start vertex of the polyline
  • endCap: Cap — the cap at the end vertex of the polyline
  • width: Float — the width of the polyline in screen pixels
  • onClick: (Polyline) -> Unit — a lambda invoked when the polyline is clicked

We will just add one Polyline that will connect the markers:

@Composable
fun ComposeMapMapPolyline() {
    val singapore = LatLng(44.811058, 20.4617586)
    val cameraPositionState: CameraPositionState = rememberCameraPositionState {
        position = CameraPosition.fromLatLngZoom(singapore, 11f)
    }
    Box(Modifier.fillMaxSize()) {
        GoogleMap(cameraPositionState = cameraPositionState){

            MapMarker(
                position = singapore,
                title = "Your Title",
                context = LocalContext.current,
                iconResourceId = R.drawable.pin
            )

            Polyline(
                points = listOf(
                    LatLng(44.811058, 20.4617586),
                    LatLng(44.811058, 20.4627586),
                    LatLng(44.810058, 20.4627586),
                    LatLng(44.809058, 20.4627586),
                    LatLng(44.809058, 20.4617586)
                )
                ,color = Color.Magenta
            )
        }
    }
}

..

We have done with draw route between two locations using Google Maps



Another Example without google API key : we can draw a track on Google Maps' App.

Button on click to draw a track on google map app

@Composable
fun ComposeMapDrawTrack() {
    val context = LocalContext.current
    Box(Modifier.fillMaxSize()) {
        Button(onClick = {
            drawTrack("Louisville", "old louisville", context)
        }) {
            Text(text = "Google map Draw Track")
        }
    }
}

private fun drawTrack(source: String, destination: String, context: Context) {
    try {
        // create a uri
        val uri: Uri = Uri.parse("https://www.google.co.in/maps/dir/$source/$destination")
        // initializing a intent with action view.
        val i = Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, uri)
        // below line is to set maps package name
        i.setPackage("com.google.android.apps.maps")
        // below line is to set flags
        i.flags = Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK
        // start activity
        context.startActivity(i)
    } catch (e: ActivityNotFoundException) {
        // when the google maps is not installed on users device
        // we will redirect our user to google play to download google maps.
        val uri: Uri = Uri.parse("https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.maps")
        // initializing intent with action view.
        val i = Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, uri)
        // set flags
        i.flags = Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK
        // to start activity
        context.startActivity(i)
    }
}

That’s it for our Compose Map, I hope you learned something new in this article and that you like it.
