Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi all, I am new to android programming and I am currently working on Google maps API to build a map application for educational purpose. My question is can I use OSMDroid data on top of google maps in the application?? As per - http://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/615/can-google-maps-take-osm-data-and-use-it-in-their-own-maps I can use it. Can some one help me how to build an overlay of traffic data from OSMDroid on google maps for android application? I installed android-osmdroid....jar and some other supporting libraries...

Thanks, Chanukya

The question has been closed for the following reason "OpenStreetMap is not a source of traffic information and this is not a forum for help on Google Maps so the question is clearly off-topic here." by Frederik Ramm 09 Jul '12, 00:09

OpenStreetMap has no traffic data.

Hi, I am using android-osmdroid library.

You say "traffic data from OSMDroid" but as described here there's no mention of OSMDroid containing any data at all - in fact OSMDroid's wiki here suggests using Mobile Atlas Creator to scrape OSM tiles, but as described here

This tool results in heavy traffic for the OSM tile servers and is likely to be blocked. Please don't use it.

If you have some other source of traffic data that's great, but if you think that the OSM project can supply it, you're going to be sadly disappointed.
