General information

Because the following table contains a warning that it shouldn't be modified because a robot builds it (is this a Wiki?) but not how to modify it, I have made this table with a sortable 100% ranking column. Do not take it as an endorsement of the ranking, but as a means to examine the table in a better than none order. The xx% is linked to the source of information. The items ranked 00% are not crap, but are unevaluated.

Developer tools

  • There are a number of projects on Google Code with both 'android' and 'openstreetmap' tags: Search Google Code.
  • Nutiteq maps Lib - Nutiteq 3D Maps lib for Android
  • OpenTouchMap is a slippy map with basic gesture-capabilities using TouchMapLight. Also supports displaying your current location using the geolocation api and allows to set permalinks.

Problems with Android

The Internet is obviously full of information regarding solving problems that you may face using Android devices. However, since some issues are especially important for mappers, below are some solutions to some of these problems.

GPS fix issues

Some people have problems getting a GPS fix on their Android device. These problems can start immediately when using a new device, or after using the device for some time.

A discussion on the HOT list provides two solutions to these problems. Both fixes seem to relate to AGPS information:

1) Change the NTP server in the 'gps.conf' file on the device [100] , either manually or with an app that does it. Rooting is required for both options.

2) Use an app (GPS Status & Toolbox = Free) to download up-to-date AGPS data [101] (download link). No rooting required.

3) Improving GPS-antenna performance (hardware "hacking").

An alternative to the build-in gps device and antenna could be a bluetooth capable GPS-mouse. GPS-mouses are build for a special purpose: getting GPS-signals and delivering this to a) a tracking unit (typically built-in) and b) and deliver GPS information to a connected device like PDA, smartphone, tablet.
Designed for basicly one purpose and not restricted by the flat formfactor of todays smartphone they have a better chance to deliver good results. Being small and lightweight they can easily be mounted at a place with good receiving condition (helmet, shoulder, ...) whereas a smartphone will need some interaction and is thus more restricted than a GPS-mouse. --EvanE (talk) 12:37, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
