Hi there !

I am looking to make an app where I have to show parking sports on streets.... it needs to be like drawing a rectangle in each place where the place spot really is along the street eventually in both sides

Is there any example for this? Or anyone could just direct the way to go...

Many thanks

I have done something similar to this in the following app https://play.google.com/store/apps/...l.interdirect.mkccm.newaccount&hl=en_US&gl=US

It draws coloured polygons on a map to show parking availability in Milton Keynes, based on a real-time API.

The data is held in a geojson file which is parsed at runtime.

I am aware there is Osmdroid for use with openstreetmap however I need something that can be used on B4I either.

Any clues of app side options to do this?

I needed something cross platform so Google Maps was the only choice at the time.

I'm not sure there is a library for B4i for Open Street Maps
