    Re: Welcome to Maps API for Qt

    Q: What is the Maps API for Qt?

    The Maps API for Qt is a cross platform API able to create location-based applications for both desktops and mobile devices. It offers mapping, search and routing functionality using Qt and QML syntax allowing you develop applications based on Nokia Maps which will run on your phone or computer. The API is part of the QtMobility package and provides services for map rendering, geocoding, reverse geocoding, positioning, landmark management and routing. The functionality is exposed via Qt and QML interfaces. A map can be embedded easily into any QML-based UI and customized with overlays and map objects.

    Q: Where can I find examples of the API in action?

    The API is part of the QtMobility package, and a comprehensive MapDemo is included. A step-by-step discussion of this can be found here: http://doc.qt.nokia.com/qtmobility/tutorials.html

    Further examples can be found on the Community Wiki: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...ory:Nokia_Maps

    Q: Where do I get an app_id and token?

    1. Open the HERE Developer Site - http://developer.here.com/ and in the top-right corner click Sign in, then pick one option:
      • Log in with your HERE account credentials – you may need to create an account first.
      • Log in with your Facebook account credentials.
    2. Open My Apps, click Create App and follow the on-screen instructions.

    see : http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...ppID_and_Token

    Q: How do I generate an new app_id and token.

    1) Log in to http://developer.here.com/
    2) Click on NEW APP.
    3) Once an app_id and token pair is generated, click on the name of your app to see the details, you should see something like:

    App ID: zqq7NvxXXXK9FGhk6zgAE
    Token: UFgJ8GuXXXu3gCblkizjrD%3D%3D

    The token is the longer string of the two, the app_id is the shorter string do not use the name of the app.
    You should generate a new app id for each application you create.

    Q: Where is the reference documentation for this API ?

    The reference documentation is hosted in the qt mobility area. See here: http://doc.qt.nokia.com/qtmobility
