In this guide you will learn how to reverse geocode a POI (point of interest) using a user input touch or click on an interactive map. The map is fully 3D, supporting pan, pinch-zoom, rotate and tilt.
First, get an API key token, see the Getting Started guide.
See the Setup Maps SDK for iOS guide.
MapSelection project example or clone the project with Git.
Extract/unpack the MapSelection project archive to a folder/directory of your choice. You can create a new directory where to unpack it.
Open the Project¶
Start Xcode, and in the welcome dialog, choose
Open an existing project.
If Xcode is already started, go to the File menu and choose Open.
Select the MapSelection.xcodeproj file and click Open.
Verify that Maps SDK for iOS is configured in Xcode, see the Setup Maps SDK for iOS guide.
Set the API key token¶
In any of the Maps SDK for iOS example projects,
AppDelegate.swift file and
scroll down to the
YOUR_TOKEN with your actual
General Magic API Key token, see the
Getting Started guide.
The project is now ready to build and run!
Run the example¶
Either connect a device via USB cable, or select a virtual device.
Run the MapSelection example. You can pan and zoom the map. On the device you can also rotate and tilt.
Click and hold for about 1 second anywhere on the map to see a reverse geocoded point of interest at that point.
