Download 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.
FEATURES:
