Map integration with any application always gives a special touch. We will discuss in detail how to integrate Google Map powerapps.
The first step would be creating your Google API key
Whenever you need to integrate a static map Or connect to Google, you will require an API for that. As it sounds very heavier, though it’s very simple. Google helps with API integration. Just go through the Google Map API to get started with Google API. You just have to copy a key similar “AIzaPyCC6Jfzjo50meU9DRsf-duxS7_VfPmzc-s” as it will be required later.
Now, Let’s have a look at the steps for adding a static Google Map
For the static Google Maps integration, you will require a demo location with your excel sheet.
Step 1: You will be required to import data of location from your excel sheet to your application after demo location listing your first step would be to build an app.
Step 2: Apparently with the location of your data, add a gallery.
Step 3: Lastly, with the gallery and location data, you need to add a few buttons for setting up a variety of variables. This variable will become the part of the URL that will require loading the static images from Google. Whatever the image of the map we are going to show in our application will be shown from the given URL.
Step 4: We will be storing the URL in a variable that will update with the clicks on Gallery.
Step 5: In the final step, we will add image control from the media drop-down. We will resize the image to match the height and width.
Step 6: Now, we will get the preview of an image and will click on the gallery to select the particular location.
