Android Adventures in Ocean Mapping

This is a story about my experience building the EMU Explorer App as a developer new to Android and mobile mapping. Some of the challenges included visualizing 52 million geometric points and global measurements in a mobile map, identifying and implementing best practices for Android, and learning developer patterns for building apps with Esri’s Android SDK. The talk will include “Things I Wish I Knew When I First Started Developing for Android” like fragments, material design snackbars, floating action buttons, bottom sheets, MVP, testing, useful libraries, and patterns applicable to mapping apps.
