Moving MKAnnotationView.

This sample iPhone project uses HGMovingAnnotation and HGMovingAnnotationView to show moving annotations on a map.


This class derives from MKAnnotation and adds the capability of updating the coordinate (position) and the rotation of the annotation. In the sample project, location updates are read from an HGMapPath, which is a collection of MKMapPoints stored on file.

The current implementation of this class reads the next point on the path every second and updates the annotation's coordinate.


This class extends MKAnnotationView by animating its position and rotation on the map. It does this by observing its HGMovingAnnotation object.
