HTML5 Web Camps Belgium Location aware shouting
HTML5 offers several solutions for augmenting the experience of users on the
web. One of these solutions is providing an accurate location of a user. Most of
today's smartphones already support the technique of requesting your location
through GPS but now an HTLM5 compatible browser can also pinpoint your location
based on the IP of your device and nearby wireless access points.
At Netlog we've been using the Geolocation API to add location information to
user messages (shouts) both on the web version and the mobile site. This
location is used to place them on a map that can be easily navigated using
HTML5. This way we enable users to find out what's going on around them or on a
location of their choice.
