Map overlay

  • 09.02.2016
  • Technology

Normally, it is easy to add a map into your app using the iOS library MapKit. If you want to customise the map from Apple you can use the annotations and overlay features.

What does it do:
Annotations display content by a single coordinate, but in overlays, it displays content that can be defined by using any number of points.

Customer benefit:
1) Annotations are used to display user’s current location/address.
2) Overlays can be used for displaying traffic routes, boundary for a park, a football ground, etc.

For example, if you have a hotel or a shop and if it has a map with overlays you can show various attractions and tourist points near it.
