i am trying compelete my project for college i am assigned to develop a businfo map in java and being a beginner in java i am completely lost in it. i am trying to use map images to show the paths and locations as start and destination. we should be able to zoom in the map to see details clearly.the path of the bus is show as the moving dotted lines or just lines. the main thing is that we should be able to find the correct bus path even if the search location lies anywhere in between the bus path.
so i hope to get some suggestion on this project, mainly how to start, which packages are good to use for such projects , and general logic to develop argorithm for the project.
