In this guide you will learn how to compute a route and render it on an interactive map. The map is fully 3D, supporting pan, pinch-zoom, rotate and tilt.
First, get an API key token, see the Getting Started guide.
See the Setup Maps SDK for iOS guide.
CalculateRoute project example or clone the project with Git.
Extract/unpack the CalculateRoute project archive to a folder/directory of your choice. You can create a new directory where to unpack it.
Open the Project¶
Start Xcode, and in the welcome dialog, choose
Open an existing project.
If Xcode is already started, go to the File menu and choose Open.
Select the CalculateRoute.xcodeproj file and click Open.
Verify that Maps SDK for iOS is configured in Xcode, see the Setup Maps SDK for iOS guide.
Set the API key token¶
In any of the Maps SDK for iOS example projects,
AppDelegate.swift file and
scroll down to the
YOUR_TOKEN with your actual
Magic Lane API Key token, see the
Getting Started guide.
The project is now ready to build and run!
Run the example¶
Either connect a device via USB cable, or select a virtual device.
Run the CalculateRoute example. You can pan and zoom the map. On the device you can also rotate and tilt.
Click the blue route icon near the top right corner to start the route calculation between a preset departure and destination location. When the route calculation completes, a fly occurs and the map is centered on the computed route(s).
If there is more than one possible route between the selected departure and destination points, the alternative routes are also shown in a lighter color. The map will be at an appropriate distance so that all computed routes are visible.
Click the blue x icon at the top to remove the route rendered on the map.
