MeasureApp: Utveckling av en Android-applikation för mätning och kartvisning med hjälp av GPS
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The objective of this project was to develop an application for mobile phones using the Android operating system. The main goal was, with the help of GPS, to pinpoint locations, measure distance traveled and illustrate the progress on a map. Functionalities for just showing the map, fetching addresses and saving to a database was also implemented. The result of the work was a proper application, called MeasureApp, that fulfills the goals set in the planning stages of the project. MeasureApp can be used to measure distances where accuracy is not a main factor, i.e walks or runs. The function of showing the map in combination with the ability of getting addresses makes it a good navigational tool as well. Since a GUI takes a lot of effort to design the focus of the project has been to establish a working application with few bugs. As a development environment Eclipse together with the Android SDK has been used. The application has mainly been written in Java except for the GUI which was constructed in XML.
