Learn about Core Location. Get familiar with the Core Location data types: CLLocationDegrees, CLLocationDirection, and CLLocationCoordinate2D.
- [Narrator] Now that you've learned…what you need to know about coordinates,…let's go into frameworks and data types.…There's two frameworks that work together,…MapKit and CoreLocation.…MapKit displays and annotates maps,…and CoreLocation does all the GPS and location math.…We'll go deeper into CoreLocation later.…For both, you'll need to understand…the CoreLocation data types.…Both CoreLocation's GPS functions and MapKit…will be using these classes, structures, and types.…We've been talking about coordinates,…and that's the first struct we'll learn.…
CLLocatoinCoordination2d is the latitude…and longitude of a location.…The latitude and longitude are of type CLLocationDegrees,…which is a TypeAlias of double.…You'll initialize a CLLocationCoordinate2d…with the statement CLLocationCoordinate2d…latitude comma longitude, specifying…the latitude and longitude.…The core class of core location is…CLLocation which stores the 3D coordinate.…While core location has several attributes,…we'll focus now on two.…
It has a 2D coordinate as a CLLocationCoordinate2d,…
