For now I only have one PNG of an indoor map of a building. I have created the nodes in JOSM, and saved it as an osm(xml)file. How would I be able to load this map on an Android device?

I know that I can use osmdroid, but can anyone guide me through loading it to osmdroid?

I'm not familiar with osmdroid but after reading their project page I'm pretty sure it doesn't support loading a .osm file but only pre-rendered tiles instead. But the osmbonuspack supports KML and GeoJSON files.

Please search for other question wrt to indoor mapping on this site. In general indoor mapping is still experimental in OSM and there is no hard and fast, one way to do it. Specifically support in the existing tools and apps is essentially non-existant.
