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.

To work with MobileSDK, you need to get the key file dgissdk.key with the obligatory indication of the appId of the application for which this key is created. This key will be used to connect to 2GIS servers and retrieve the geographical data, as well as to use offline and the navigator. This key is unique to the SDK and cannot be used with other 2GIS SDKs.

To obtain this key file, fill in the form at

The resulting key file must be added to the assets of the application.

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'
