General question about GIS mapping in Android
Posted on 2012-09-06
I have a spatial database that has objects in Blob format but can also output SVG format. SVG is not particularly efficient however.
I am developing a simple mapping application. What I am wondering is how do GIS mapping applications, map their objects. I am not after a full blown GIS, I am just after a portion of the functionality.
Breaking it down, can I map from blob format instead of svg? Can I select an object, get it to highlight and give attribute information?
If so where would a good starting point be to start developing this?
