Lynda com HTML5 Geolocation in Depth-QUASAR

HTML5: Geolocation in Depth shows how to add location tracking to a

web application with a combination of JavaScript, CSS and HTML5.

First, author and HTML5 expert Bill Weinman provides a thorough

explanation of the geolocation API, including considerations every

developer should take into account, such as data dependability, power

usage, and privacy concerns. The course then covers how to detect

support for geolocation, retrieve coordinates from a device (whether

once or continuously), handle errors, and integrate the results with

Google Maps to create a location-aware web application that will run

on many mobile browsers. Exercise files are included with the course.
