HTML5 Geolocation How-to Cover

I was recently honored to be asked to act as a technical reviewer for Ben Werdmuller’s new book HTML5 Geolocation How-to. The book takes an in-depth look into the Geolocation API and shows you how to get the most out of this new technology in your own web applications.

Some of the topics Ben covers are:

  • How Geolocation Works
  • The Geolocation API syntax
  • How to retrieve the user’s location, altitude, speed and direction
  • How to use the Geolocation API with Google Maps

Ben has done a really fantastic job with this book. I highly recommend grabbing a copy if you want to learn more about the Geolocation API.
