Flutter Tracking App(Map)

Flutter Tracking App

In this article, we’ll see how we can build a live Tracking app using a flutter using a few lines of code. We can also use a firebase and store geo-coordinates to get the live location of another device.

google_maps_flutter: location:

We need to get the current location of the device to mark its position on the map and this can be done by location plugin. and You can also store in a database to get it from there as well!

location.onLocationChanged().listen((LocationData currentLocation) {
      print(currentLocation.latitude);
     print(currentLocation.longitude);
      
}

Now it time to put Map on flutter by using google_maps_flutter plugin.As we have location plugin we will assign the current latitude and longitude

 Completer<GoogleMapController> _controller = Completer();
//it require static initial location which will be updated in initState()   

static final CameraPosition _initMapLoc = CameraPosition(
      bearing: 192.8334901395799,
      target: LatLng(37.43296265331129, -122.08832357078792),
      tilt: 59.440717697143555,
      zoom: 19.151926040649414);

  @override
 Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return new Scaffold(
      body: GoogleMap(
        mapType: MapType.hybrid,
        initialCameraPosition: _initMapLoc,
        onMapCreated: (GoogleMapController controller) {
          _controller.complete(controller);
        }
        
      ),
      floatingActionButton: FloatingActionButton.extended(
          icon: Icon(Icons.directions_boat),
      ),
    );
  }
