Join Carlos Rivas for an in-depth discussion in this video Intro: Where am I?, part of Code Clinic: Java.
- [Narrator] Hello and welcome to the 2nd problem…of the Code Clinic series.…This problem is titled, Where Am I,…and demonstrates how to create geolocation applications.…Every modern computer has the ability to find its location.…HTML5 has the geolocation API,…Google Maps returns a location and accuracy radius…for mobile phones, based on WiFi and cell towers,…some libraries map the computer's IP address…to a longitude and latitude.…
Some methods are more accurate than others.…Onboard GPS is going to be more accurate…than trying to guess WiFi addresses.…But each method can provide some indication…of where the computer is located.…In this Code Clinic challenge,…we're challenging our authors to create…a geolocation app to show a location…of the computer running their code.…Their solution should reveal…the longitude and latitude of the current location,…as well as an indicator of how accurate that location is,…expressed as a radius from…the revealed longitude and latitude,…measured in kilometers.…
This challenge is going to require…
