Google maps api


#1

Hello, is there any way to use the google maps api, if yes is there some document as reference? Thanks a lot


#2

Google Maps JS API: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/


#3

Yes Lizzip i already saw that, i meant if there was some example on playcanvas. Anyway this project will need to be wrapped for iphone and i don’t know much of how a playcanvas project can be wrapped on iphone ( i saw gonative.io and others) i was thinking to ask some help has paid job


#4

That page has demos, samples and tutorial code which should be enough to at least try yourself?


#5

I will give it a shot Lizzip. If this works as i have in mind will be a great shot. PS: it’s not a game of course.


#6

Ehm how do i rewrite this in playcanvas?


#7

Go to “https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=YOUR_API_KEY&callback=initMap” and save the contents of that as a script in your project I guess


#8

Add script using javascript as element.

No, i don’t get it at all. Why does it have to be on iphone instead of android ;_; so unlucky.
PS: i already did the app for android in around 3 hrs and after i discovered that is needed on iphone. Unluckly there is no program for ios like the MIT app inventor for android

Ok i noticed that get the latitude and longitude is easy with navigator.geolocation, what i need is to get the address from the coordinates, so a reverse geolocation. so i need the google apis (and i don’t get at all how to use that) or i guess with leaflet (and still don’t get the use). Someone has some clue?
PS: I don’t need any visualization of the map


#11

Hello again, i have found this https://developer.here.com/javascript-apis/documentation/v3/maps/topics/geocoding.html the second part talk about reverse geocoding with an example, so i have tried to apply it to my code here https://playcanvas.com/editor/code/440230/geo.js with no success…depressed. Any clue? ( I tried to remove the map visualization function)

@Max (plus others): I realize that this topic is old, but to me it has suddenly gotten very relevant. Is it possible to make a tutorial on this? ( loading scripts asynchronously, is above my qualif’s and time) It gets especially hard when it sounds like you will call Google Maps API, in the html-part of the webpage (as element), while PlayCanvas Javascript is its own metaversion of ‘real’ Javascript, executed in your container?
