How to use ArrayList and For loop after that put the result of the loop in an array?


I have shoreline coordinates (More than a hundred coordinates) and i want to put the coordinates in to array. After that calculate distance between my current location to all of the coordinates (using for loop) and put the result into an array too. So i have two array

  1. Geo points Array
  2. Distance Array

I want to find the minimum value of the Distance array but the program always force close. Here is my code just show ten Coordinates :

public class Nav extends FragmentActivity {

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        List<GeoPoint> points = new ArrayList<GeoPoint>();

        Double latitude1 = Double.parseDouble("-0.696928");
        Double longitude1 = Double.parseDouble("119.843473");
        GeoPoint latLong1 = new GeoPoint((int)(latitude1*1e6),(int)(longitude1*1e6));

        Double latitude2 = Double.parseDouble("-0.699331");
        Double longitude2 = Double.parseDouble("119.84416");
        GeoPoint latLong2 = new GeoPoint((int)(latitude2*1e6),(int)(longitude2*1e6));

        Double latitude3 = Double.parseDouble("-0.701048");
        Double longitude3 = Double.parseDouble("119.843817");
        GeoPoint latLong3 = new GeoPoint((int)(latitude3*1e6),(int)(longitude3*1e6));

        Double latitude4 = Double.parseDouble("-0.702592");
        Double longitude4 = Double.parseDouble("119.843817");
        GeoPoint latLong4 = new GeoPoint((int)(latitude4*1e6),(int)(longitude4*1e6));

        Double latitude5 = Double.parseDouble("-0.701563");
        Double longitude5 = Double.parseDouble("119.84622");
        GeoPoint latLong5 = new GeoPoint((int)(latitude5*1e6),(int)(longitude5*1e6));

        Double latitude6 = Double.parseDouble("-0.702249");
        Double longitude6 = Double.parseDouble("119.84725");
        GeoPoint latLong6 = new GeoPoint((int)(latitude6*1e6),(int)(longitude6*1e6));

        Double latitude7 = Double.parseDouble("-0.703451");
        Double longitude7= Double.parseDouble("119.846907");
        GeoPoint latLong7 = new GeoPoint((int)(latitude7*1e6),(int)(longitude7*1e6));

        Double latitude8 = Double.parseDouble("-0.705167");
        Double longitude8 = Double.parseDouble("119.847937");
        GeoPoint latLong8 = new GeoPoint((int)(latitude8*1e6),(int)(longitude8*1e6));

        Double latitude9 = Double.parseDouble("-0.70654");
        Double longitude9 = Double.parseDouble("119.849653");
        GeoPoint latLong9 = new GeoPoint((int)(latitude9*1e6),(int)(longitude9*1e6));

        Double latitude10 = Double.parseDouble("10. -0.707914");
        Double longitude10 = Double.parseDouble("119.85137");
        GeoPoint latLong10 = new GeoPoint((int)(latitude10*1e6),(int)(longitude10*1e6));


        // Get the location manager
        LocationManager locationManager = (LocationManager) getSystemService(LOCATION_SERVICE);
        Criteria criteria = new Criteria();
        Location location = locationManager.getLastKnownLocation(locationManager.getBestProvider(criteria, true));
        Double lat,lon;

        lat = location.getLatitude ();
        lon = location.getLongitude ();

        Location locationA = new Location("USER");

        ArrayList<Double> dist = new ArrayList<Double>();
        for(int i=0; i<=points.size(); i++){
            double distances = locationA.distanceTo(points(i));

            double minDist = Collections.min(dist);
            Toast.makeText( getApplicationContext(),
                    "Your Distance to the beach is " + minDist,


    private Location points(int i) {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
        return null;

Is Somebody know what is wrong whit my code ? And how to know and show what Goepoint is close with my location ? Here is my LogCat

Without seeing your error message, I can definitely spot a problem. You are iterating past the end of the list. Use < instead of <= in your loop condition.

Also, and this may not be an error, but why are you calling Collections.min() within the loop? Wouldn't you want to do that after all the distances are populated? Am I misunderstanding what you're going for?
