Android SDK

Android SDK is an SDK that allows you to add a 2GIS map to your Android application. It can be used to display the map in your layout, add custom markers to it, draw geometric shapes, calculate and display routes, get information about map objects, control the camera movement, and so on.

You can find usage examples in the Examples section. For a detailed description of all classes and methods, see API Reference.

Geodata complies with OGC standards.

Usage of this SDK requires an API key to connect to 2GIS servers and retrieve the geographical data. This API key is unique to the SDK and cannot be used with other 2GIS SDKs.

Additionally, if you plan to draw routes on the map or get extra information about map objects, you will need a separate key - a Directory API key.

To obtain either of these API keys, fill in the form at

Android SDK is distributed in two versions: full and lite. The lite version does not include the routes and navigation functionality.

To install the SDK:

  1. Declare a custom repository in your build.gradle file.
repositories {
    maven {
        url ""
  1. Add one of the following build dependencies.

To get the lite version of the SDK:

dependencies {
    implementation 'ru.dgis.sdk:sdk-map:latest.release'

To get the full version of the SDK:

dependencies {
    implementation 'ru.dgis.sdk:sdk-full:latest.release'
