I am a beginner in programming with JAVA. I have to do a project in JAVA along with three others as an assignment for the semester. We came up with the idea of creating an android app for our university. So, this app would basically be a map of the entire university. Since we are just getting started, we are planning to start with modelling one particular building or just one particular depending on the time it would take. We are planning to create a 2d line map with a top view(like a blueprint of a house) of each floor which contains the positions of the class rooms and staff rooms etc.Something like the image attached. So, if we search for a particular class in the app. it would give us the layout of the floor in which the class is present and highlight the class that we are searching for.

That is the project in a nutshell. If this comes out good, we are to expand this for the entire university. But I have no idea where to start. What should I know for this project?How do I integrate it with JAVA? What applications should I use? How do I create the map and how do I integrate it with my java code and how do I make an android app out of it?

It would be really helpful if you could point me in the right direction to kick start my project. I know that I need to learn a lot as a beginner to do this project. So, advice from you guys on what to learn and how to use it for my project would be really helpful.

I am a beginner in programming with JAVA.

Your project sounds very ambitious for a beginner.
As always, start with a design
For coding, get  some example programs to experiment with that draw 2D shapes that could be used for representing a floor in a building.

There is too much required here for me.  Perhaps some of the other helpers that like to write tutorials will see this thread and offer their advice.

And welcome to the forum.
