I want to collect coordinates from users, store it in a cloud database of sorts and then use the coordinates to place markers in every instance of a stored coordinate. How would one go about doing this?
you can work with stored variables
it would need to save data from countless different users though from different accounts.
You could give each user a unique ID in your app.
Create a Firebase DB that contains a list of items, where the key of each item in the list is the user IDs and the properties of each object in the list are the latitude/longitude values.
As the user uses the app, save their current latitude/longitude to the item in your Firebase DB that has their user ID as the key.
For each item in your Firebase DB, add a marker to your map with the item’s latitude and longitude.
You can learn about adding a Firebase DB to your app here: Variables - ✕ Docs
that’s precisely what i’ve done. I have the values stored under USER ID and a time variable, but i’m having immense trouble accessing the lat, long for each instance it appears
I wanted to ask how I’m supposed to go about ‘getting’ the values lat/long once they’re stored under the USER ID key?
please help i am so desperate and confused
