# Map Schemes

SDK for Android provides a variety of map skins for your application to choose from, these skins are otherwise known as map schemes.

Map.Scheme defines visualization types that the HERE map service supports. There is a variety of map schemes available that can be used based on the specific use case:
• Explore - Normal, Terrain, Pedestrian
• Overlays - Grey, Transit, Reduced, Traffic
You can set a desired scheme by making a call to Map.setMapScheme(String) method.

## Examples of Map Scheme

All available schemes are defined as constant strings in the Map.Scheme class. The following are examples of string values that you can use to set the map scheme in your application:

 Figure 1. Scheme.NORMAL_DAY Figure 2. Scheme.SATELLITE_DAY
 Figure 3. Scheme.HYBRID_DAY Figure 4. Scheme.TERRAIN_DAY
Note: Your application also needs to switch to one of the following schemes if you enable traffic information with Map.setTrafficInfoVisible(true). These map schemes are otherwise identical to their non-traffic counterparts.
• Scheme.HYBRID_TRAFFIC_DAY
• Scheme.HYBRID_TRAFFIC_NIGHT
• Scheme.NORMAL_TRAFFIC_DAY
• Scheme.NORMAL_TRAFFIC_NIGHT
Note: In addition to the preceding schemes Scheme.SATELLITE_NIGHT is also available. It is similar to Scheme.SATELLITE_DAY but the color of the sky is different when the map is tilted.

 Figure 7. Scheme.NORMAL_NIGHT Figure 8. Scheme.NORMAL_DAY_TRANSIT

HERE SDK also offers the following schemes to be used with navigation:

• Scheme.CARNAV_DAY
• Scheme.CARNAV_NIGHT
• Scheme.CARNAV_HYBRID_DAY
• Scheme.CARNAV_HYBRID_NIGHT
• Scheme.CARNAV_TRAFFIC_DAY
• Scheme.CARNAV_TRAFFIC_NIGHT
• Scheme.CARNAV_TRAFFIC_HYBRID_DAY
• Scheme.CARNAV_TRAFFIC_HYBRID_NIGHT
• Scheme.CARNAV_DAY_GREY
• Scheme.CARNAV_NIGHT_GREY
• Scheme.PEDESTRIAN_DAY
• Scheme.PEDESTRIAN_NIGHT
• Scheme.PEDESTRIAN_DAY_HYBRID
• Scheme.PEDESTRIAN_NIGHT_HYBRID
• Scheme.TRUCKNAV_DAY
• Scheme.TRUCKNAV_NIGHT
• Scheme.TRUCKNAV_HYBRID_DAY
• Scheme.TRUCKNAV_HYBRID_NIGHT

If you are using a pedestrian navigation scheme, it is recommended that you also enable the pedestrian features using the Map class. See Maps for more details.

Note: HERE SDK does not automatically switch map schemes during navigation mode. Before starting car or pedestrian navigation be sure to save the current map scheme and switch to the appropriate navigation map scheme. When navigation has completed, your application code should switch back to the previously saved scheme.

## Map Schemes Example on GitHub

You can find an example that demonstrates this feature at https://github.com/heremaps/.

## Setting a Map Scheme

The following example demonstrates how to retrieve available map schemes and change the current map scheme:

// Array containing string values of all available map schemes
List<String> schemes = map.getMapSchemes();
// Assume to select the 2nd map scheme in the available list
map.setMapScheme(schemes.get(1));


## Listening to MapScheme Change Events

Applications can listen to map scheme change events via Map.OnSchemeChangedListener:

map.addSchemeChangedListener(new OnSchemeChangedListener() {
@Override
public void onMapSchemeChanged(String mapScheme) {
// react to map scheme change here
}
});

For information on the fleet map scheme see Mobile Asset Management.
