The Xamarin.Android Maps control is a powerful data visualization component that displays statistical information for a geographical area. It has highly interactive and customizable features such as zooming, panning, selecting, legends, markers, bubbles, and color mapping. Using the Maps control, you can render various maps, such as for sales, political boundaries, weather, elections, and route maps.

Xamarin.Android Maps control overview.

Shape layers

Shape layers provide options to render geographical shapes or custom shapes on maps.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports data.


Shapefiles (.shp) and GeoJSON (.json) data can be bound to maps to render any geometric shape.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports shapes customization.


The default style of a shape can be customized using the color, stroke, and thickness properties.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports adding custom shapes.

Custom shapes

The Xamarin.Android Maps control allows you to render any custom shape to make a map look like building infrastructure, a sports stadium, plane or bus seat arrangements, and more.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports sublayers.


Load multiple shape files in a single map view. For example, add a sublayer over a main shape layer to view geographic features of a country such as rivers, valleys, and cities.

Imagery layers

Imagery layers provide options to visualize satellite, aerial, and street maps, or other imagery tiles without using shapefiles.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports OpenStreetMap.


Xamarin.Android OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a map of the world built by a community of mappers that is free to use under an open license. It allows users to view geographical data in a collaborative way from anywhere on Earth.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports Bing Maps.

Bing Maps

Xamarin.Android Bing Maps is a map of the entire world owned by Microsoft. It supports three types of map views: aerial, aerial with label, and road.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports auto zoom

Auto zoom

Set the initial zoom level automatically based on map Geo-bounds or distance (KM/miles) from the geo-point center value.

Data labels

Map shapes can be easily annotated with labels to improve the readability of particular shapes’ names.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports data label customization.

Label customization

The look and feel of the default labels can be customized using the font style, size, and color properties.

Xamarin.Android Maps provides options to trim or hide data labels when labels overlap each other.

Smart label alignments

Labels can be aligned smartly within shape boundaries and can be trimmed or hidden to avoid labels overlapping.

Heat map

Produce a heat map by customizing the shape colors based on the underlying shape values.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports equal color mapping.

Equal color mapping

Equal color mapping differentiates a shape’s fill color based on its underlying value and color. For example, colors can be applied to states based on their winning political candidates.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports range color mapping.

Range color mapping

Colors can be applied to shapes by comparing their values with desired numeric ranges. For example, colors can be applied to states based on their population density.

Maps markers

Markers allow you to denote a place with symbols or display some message at a specific latitude and longitude on a map.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports different types of markers.

Marker types

The marker type can be changed to built-in shapes such as circles, diamonds, rectangles, or squares to highlight a place.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports custom markers.

Custom markers

Markers can be customized by adding images or any custom shape to highlight a location.

Map bubbles

Bubbles are used to add additional information to shapes such as population density or land area. They are rendered with various magnitudes and colors based on the underlying data values of the shapes.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports bubble customization.

Color customization

The default color of a bubble and its transparency can be customized using the fill and opacity properties.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports bubble size customization.

Size customization

The minimum and maximum sizes of a bubble can be customized.

Map legend

A legend is used to provide valuable information for interpreting maps with various colors, shapes, or other identifiers based on the data and application requirements.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports legend positioning.

Legend position

The position of a legend can be changed or moved to any place inside a map.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports legend icon customization.

Icon customization

The default size of a legend icon can be customized.

User interactions

The end user experience is greatly enhanced by a set of user interaction features such as selection, zooming, and panning.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports selection.


A particular area or shape can be selected or highlighted on user interaction to bring the center of the view over other shapes in a map.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports zooming.


Zooming allows end users to get a closer look at a particular area of interest on a map by stretching and pinching it.

Xamarin.Android Maps supports panning.


Panning allows end users to move a map around to focus on a specific area and navigate across its regions.
