Notification APIs request - Android

In use of a notification, Location of the mobile is one thing but knowing from what the mobile is close to is another thing. Find out here how to use Woosmap Search API to “geo contextualize” the location of your users.
  1. Find the Closest POIs and Display a Result Map

Find the Closest POIs and Display a Result Map

Location of the mobile is the first step but you may need to contextualize this location. Answering questions like “Where might be the user?”, “What could he be visiting?” is one step further to provide value to your users.

In the code below a call to the Woosmap Search API is performed to find what is the closest POI from the user location.

Don’t forget to load the proper POIs you want to monitor in Woosmap first (your stores/restaurants/services, your competitors, etc). You’ll find anything about how to do this in our Woosmap Developer Documentation.

Once the location obtained and the closest store identified, plot all of this on a Static Map from Google Maps API. Thanks to the code below you’ll obtain a jpeg file to display in your notification.

Obviously, you must wait for the result of the first API call before calling the Google Maps API.

getLatestLocation(this.context, new OnSuccessListener<Location> () {
    public void onSuccess(final Location location) {
        if (location == null) {
            Log.d(WoosmapSettings.Tags.WoosmapTag, "Can't get user Location");

        final RequestQueue requestQueue = Volley.newRequestQueue(context);

        val url = getStoreAPIUrl(location.getLatitude, location.getLongitude)
        StringRequest stringRequest = new StringRequest (urlAPI, new Response.Listener<String>() {
            public void onResponse(String response) {
                Gson gson = new Gson();
                SearchAPI data = gson.fromJson (response, SearchAPI.class);
                Feature featureSearch = data.getFeatures ()[0];
                String city = featureSearch.getProperties ().getAddress ().getCity ();
                String zipcode = featureSearch.getProperties ().getAddress ().getZipcode ();
                String distance = String.valueOf (featureSearch.getProperties ().getDistance ());
                double longitudePOI = featureSearch.getGeometry ().getCoordinates ()[0];
                double latitudePOI = featureSearch.getGeometry ().getCoordinates ()[1];

                // Fill body message with informations from API
                final String messageBody = "city = " + city +  "\n zipcode = " + zipcode + "\n distance = " + distance;
                mBuilder.setContentText (messageBody);
                mBuilder.setContentTitle("Location Notification");

                // Request Google Maps Static
                String urlGMPStatic = String.format (WoosmapSettings.Urls.GoogleMapStaticUrl,String.valueOf (location.getLatitude ()),String.valueOf (location.getLongitude ()),String.valueOf (latitudePOI),String.valueOf (longitudePOI),WoosmapSettings.privateKeyGMPStatic);

                // Retrieves an image specified by the URL, displays it in the UI.
                ImageRequest request = new ImageRequest (urlGMPStatic,
                        new Response.Listener<Bitmap>() {
                            public void onResponse(Bitmap bitmap) {
                                mStyle[0] = new NotificationCompat.BigPictureStyle().bigPicture(bitmap);
                                mBuilder.setLargeIcon (bitmap);


                                Notification notification =;
                                mNotificationManager.notify(new Random ().nextInt(20), notification);

                        }, 0, 0, null, null,
                        new Response.ErrorListener() {
                            public void onErrorResponse(VolleyError error) {
                                Log.e (WoosmapSettings.Tags.WoosmapTag, error.toString() + "");
                // Add ImageRequest to the RequestQueue
        }, new Response.ErrorListener() {
            public void onErrorResponse(VolleyError error) {
                // Anything you want
                Log.e (WoosmapSettings.Tags.WoosmapTag, error.toString() + " search API");


Modify the body, subtitle and attachment of the content handler to show the informations from APIs.
