Google Maps API Key

To use JxMaps you must get a Google Maps API key and configure the library using the following code:

MapViewOptions options = new MapViewOptions();
MapView view = new MapView(options);

The API key is used to track API requests associated with your project for usage and billing. To learn more about Google Maps API keys, see


JxMaps allows using Google Maps without the API key, but since June 2018 Google Maps greyed out and covered with a watermark if you don’t provide the key. So, we strongly recommend that you always configure JxMaps with your API key.
