This is our third post of CartoDB’s mobile blog series. If you’ve missed any of our previous posts you can view them here and here. In this edition, we’ll continue to build on the information from the earlier posts and present new and compelling details on how you can consume the same CartoDB platform and engine that you love with the Nutiteq SDK.
Once you have the basic app running, you might wonder: how exactly can you consume CartoDB via the SDK? If you have already tried the basic app with the SDK then you may have discovered that there are no CartoDB specific methods. This will change with the next SDK updates. However, you can already consume a lot of the CartoDB platform:
Before consuming CartoDB via the SDK, you need to know specific endpoints — tile URLs, CartoCSS, SQL API endpoints, etc. The best way to get these endpoints is to use the CartoDB Maps API request. This part is not yet done by the SDK, so currently your app needs to handle it itself. It is not very difficult: just JSON+HTTP requests are needed.
Last, but not least — we have just published the CartoDB integration code samples for Advanced Map samples for Android. See:
Just remember that for these you’ll need to use the latest development version (snapshot) of the SDK.
Figure below summarizes various ways how the SDK can consume CartoDB data:
