    Hello, I want to develop an application where you can view a small map of an area perhaps 4 miles square however I don't want to use the Google Maps api as it doesn't have enough detail of the particular area and I would like the application to workwithout an internet connection. At the moment the map is in jpg form. I am wondering the best way to go about this in particular:

    - is there any way I can use the mapView for this or something similar to make life a bit easier
    - should I put the map into a vector format so that for instance it is easier to do rotation

    I am completely new to developing with Android but am OK with Java and am in the process of going through some tutorials.
    Any help or advice would be very much appreciated.
