Location aware websites, applications and devices can provide users with rich social connectivity, useful content, efficient movement around their environment, highly targeted advertising, and more. We will discuss the new W3C Geolocation API, location-aware browsers and other available tools that can add location to websites and applications.
While most devices now have functionality which make location determination possible, understanding these technologies and how they can be deployed into mobile devices and websites can be complicated.
In this session, we will discuss the technical details of the APIs available to help location-enable your websites, and how to deploy them. These tools include the W3C Geolocation API, Mozilla’s Geode, the Loki Plugin, Fire Eagle and Google’s My Location.
