    The aim of this thesis is to describe and develop an application for the Android mobile platform that will be able to store and display location data. The first part of the thesis is devoted to the presentation of tools and technologies that are used in the development of mobile applications. In presenting tools, we focused on those used in our application. Other tools are described in less detail. In the second part, we presented an idea for the application, the process of its development, some interesting pieces of code in the Java programming language, implementation problems and possible improvements. We also presented similar applications available for the Android platform. The result of the thesis is an application that is written in the Java programming language. The application utilizes special libraries to connect with Google Maps, allowing us, among other things, to mark points on a map presented as coordinates of longitude and latitude. The developed application allows us to mark points on the map, for which we can then enter descriptions, for example the address or description of the location. The application also allows us to view our current position on the map and select the nearest and all points that have been previously entered or imported. The application supports the importing of KML files (Keyhole Markup Language). It can be used on all mobile devices that are running the Android operating system. During writing this thesis, we have gained considerable expertise in the field of application development for the Android platform. Our main goal to develop a solution for storing and displaying location data has been achieved.
