Hello guys,
 I am working on a project where I have to implement MQTT for a location-based service on Androids. The location-based service requires me to use existing Google Maps APIs to provide detailed place information such as geographic location etc., how does one link MQTT broker with the Google databases? How does it work?

Exactly what are you trying to do here?

Google Maps doesn't have any MQTT interface, it uses HTTP REST API calls. You'd have to do whatever you want via MQTT separately from the Maps stuff. Maybe you could have location coordinates published to your Android device over MQTT, and then plug that into the REST calls to Google Maps?

Thank you Andy, i tried to search everywhere it looks like Google Maps doesn't really have MQTT interface, I'll use that alternative then.
