Truly revolutionary: now you can write geolocation applications directly in the browser, rather than develop native apps for particular devices. This concise book demonstrates the W3C Geolocation API in action, with code and examples to help you build HTML5 apps using the "write once, deploy everywhere" model. Along the way, you get a crash course in geolocation, browser support, and ways to integrate the API with common geo tools like Google Maps.

The book is concise, but thorough, well con¬≠structed and logically arranged. The linear treatment of demonstrating what is involved, how it is implemented and the following this with discussion of why and where it is of value for consumers of the data is beauti¬≠fully delivered. This is an excellent reference manual and can be read as either an overview introduction to the why and wherefore or as a more detailed and stepped development info source. Full Review  >
