    Post Need suggestions regarding Map Click

    Hi,

    I have an application in iphone related to map, now what happens they have the markers and every click on markers they show their customized information. I asked them about the click recognizing the lat long and they are saying they got information by the API support.
    Now i have the question, is there any same way to get the information related to the Lat Long by click if i have the static images Map with markers.

    Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Re: Need suggestions regarding Map Click

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.. I am simply using Google Map API , Hit the google map server and get the image which i show to the screen. Now though i am making application for the touch phone, now we need when the user click to the particular marker it should show some information related to that marker.
    Now my problem is how i recognize the marker as the image is static and there is no mapping between the x-y co-ordinates and Lat Long(though we can show Marker info by Lat Long ).

    What should i do??

    if you need interction you should use interactive Maps, the Qt API would be propably fine.

    But the problem is i have already made the application in symbian C++, only this part is left. So i have to do all again in QT.

    Basically if you use some 3rd party API that is not designed for the task then, it is rather impossible to make it do the task. anyway, if you have an image, and you know that it has something to touch in the middle, you could always try using touch events and make a logic that determines whether the click is close enough to the center etc.

    I used the 3rd party API because AFAIK there is no symbian API for this purpose.

    Yes we can do like that but what when we have more than 30 markers in a map. and we do not know which marker is for which lat long..

    What would you say Please.

    I would say that it sounds pretty much mission impossible then.
