Retrieve location from Firebase and put marker on google map

I created the database in Firebase and tried to show the marker in the map. Still not working. what should I do. The app runs but when map activity is opened the app closes. I creates the database manually. I referred this link :- Retrieve location from Firebase and put marker on google map api for android.

This is the code

Map Activity

map.java

import androidx.annotation.NonNull;
import androidx.annotation.Nullable;
import androidx.fragment.app.FragmentActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.CameraUpdate;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.CameraUpdateFactory;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.GoogleMap;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.OnMapReadyCallback;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.SupportMapFragment;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.model.LatLng;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.model.MarkerOptions;
import com.google.firebase.auth.FirebaseAuth;
import com.google.firebase.database.ChildEventListener;
import com.google.firebase.database.DataSnapshot;
import com.google.firebase.database.DatabaseError;
import com.google.firebase.database.DatabaseReference;
import com.google.firebase.database.FirebaseDatabase;
import com.google.firebase.database.ValueEventListener;

import java.lang.reflect.Array;
import java.util.EventListener;

public class map extends FragmentActivity implements OnMapReadyCallback {

     FirebaseDatabase mDatabase;
     DatabaseReference mDatabaseReference;
     String nameddd;
    private GoogleMap mMap;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_map);
        // Obtain the SupportMapFragment and get notified when the map is ready to be used.
        SupportMapFragment mapFragment = (SupportMapFragment) getSupportFragmentManager()
                .findFragmentById(R.id.map);
        mapFragment.getMapAsync(this);

        nameddd = FirebaseDatabase.getInstance().getReference("Location").child("Name").toString();
        mDatabase = FirebaseDatabase.getInstance();
        mDatabaseReference = mDatabase.getReference("Location");
    }
    @Override
    public void onMapReady(GoogleMap googleMap) {
        mMap = googleMap;

        mDatabaseReference.addChildEventListener(new ChildEventListener() {
            @Override
            public void onChildAdded(@NonNull DataSnapshot dataSnapshot, @Nullable String s) {
                LatLng newLocation = new LatLng(dataSnapshot.child("Latitude").getValue(Long.class),dataSnapshot.child("Longitude").getValue(Long.class));
                mMap.addMarker(new MarkerOptions().position(newLocation).title(nameddd)
                );
            }

            @Override
            public void onChildChanged(@NonNull DataSnapshot dataSnapshot, @Nullable String s) {

            }

            @Override
            public void onChildRemoved(@NonNull DataSnapshot dataSnapshot) {

            }

            @Override
            public void onChildMoved(@NonNull DataSnapshot dataSnapshot, @Nullable String s) {

            }

            @Override
            public void onCancelled(@NonNull DatabaseError databaseError) {

            }
        });
    }}

This is the Firebase database structure

Location
   |-2JHHhnUhYKVzAmoDvrhtUJfhGEg2
         |- ABpos: "20"
         |- Latitude: "12"
         |- Longitude: "22"
         |- Name: "Sion"

Answer

You are getting the following error:

com.google.firebase.database.DatabaseException: Failed to convert a value of type java.lang.String to long

Because you are trying to get the value of the Latitude property as a Long:

dataSnapshot.child("Latitude").getValue(Long.class)

While in your database is stored as a String.

|- Longitude: "22"

See the equation marks?

To solve this, you should change the type for your Latitude and Longitude properties in the database to be of type double and not String:

|- Longitude: 22.01

And get them accordingly:

double lat = dataSnapshot.child("Latitude").getValue(Double.class)

The latitude and longitude cannot be long numbers, it should be double and this is because both contain decimals.
