Android Google Map v2 Tutorial With Markers

In this tutorial, I will show you how to implement GoogleMap in your application.

To use Google Maps in your application we need GoogleMapsApi_Key

you can get this key from Google developers console  from here.

we use this API key in AndroidManifest.xml file

Carefully add all permissions in AndroidManifest.xml

For Eclipse ADT users add download google play services library by following steps:-

1.Copy the library project at <android-sdk>/extras/google/google_play_services/libproject/google-play-services_lib/ to the location where your project.

2.Import the library project into your project by File->Import, select Android, Existing android code into your workspace and browse to the copy of the project and then click Finish.

For Android Studio users add  dependency in your Gradle file

compile ‘com.google.android.gms:play-services:8.4.0’
