Picking location with map pin using Google maps in Android


Google Maps API has provided awesome functionalities for android users, Like Search places, Pick address by tapping on map, Distance and time duration between two coordinates on the map.

In this blog, we are going to see how we can get the address of a location by dragging the map marker to that location.

So, let’s start with the first step. Declaring the dependencies related to maps.

Now, let’s move to the layout changes. We would need to add a map fragment in the layout file according to the design needed.

Then we need to declare the permissions related to the location and also need to check the permission at run time in devices above or equal to Android M.

Now obtain SupportMapFragment and get notified when the map is ready by overriding OnMapReadyCallback

Now let’s override the onMapReady function

In the next step, we will be adding a listener for the marker dragging. You can add this in onMapReady function. And with this, we can get the Address object when the marker dragging is ended by the user in onMarkerDragEnd method.

By following these steps you can get an address of a location by dragging the marker to that location.
