The example searches for the specified destination and flies to it.
If the destination has a perimeter, it is shown on the map.
Displays an interactive map which is fully 3D, supporting pan, pinch-zoom, rotate and tilt.

How it works

Android example screenshot

You can open the MainActivity.kt file and edit the search text as shown in the code block below, and run the app again to fly to a different area.

 1// Kotlin code
 2SdkInitHelper.onNetworkConnected = {
 3  // Defines an action that should be done after the network is connected.
 4  SdkCall.execute {
 5    val text = "Seattle" //"Paris" //"Amsterdam"
 6    val coordinates = Coordinates(0.0, 0.0)
 7    searchService.preferences.setSearchMapPOIs(true)
 8    searchService.searchByFilter(text, coordinates)
 9  }

For example, you can change Seattle to Paris or Amsterdam in the text string and then run the example again.
