  • Transcript

    • 1. HTML 5 geolocation Kristoffer Snabb
    • 2. Scope of the working group• Retrieve a users location only once• Retrieve several data points over time• Retrieve a sequence of locations at irregular intervals (e.g. each time a photo is taken)
    • 3. Geolocation API• Simple interface to get user location with the help of three functions – getCurrentPosition – watchPosition – clearWatch
    • 4. The interface• navigator.geolocation.<function name>• successCallback, errorCallback• PositionOptions – enableHighAccuracy – False, True – Timeout – maximumAge – requireCoords – True, False – requestAddress – False, True
    • 5. The output• Coords – latitude, longitude, altitude, accuracy, altitudeAcc uracy, heading, speed, verticalSpeed• Address – country, region, county, city, street, streetNumber, premises, postalCode• timestamp
    • 6. What makes it complex?
    • 7. Triangulation/forward link examples• GPS – Accuracy about 10m – Does not work indoors• Wi-Fi – Accuracy about 20m – Works indoors• Cell tower – Accuracy depends on cell coverage
    • 8. Geo IP example• Mobile phone ip address is ephemeral?• Latency and traceroute information
    • 9. Social network example• likelihood of friendship with a person is decreasing with distance• Your friend shared location with GPS• Your friends profile has an address Good enough for marketing, goodcomputational performance and increasedlocation probability when used with geo IP
    • 10. Search query analysis exampleWWW 2008 / Refereed Track: Search - Query Analysis April 21-25, 2008 · Beijing, China F i gur e 8: Spher es of i nfl uence of basebal l t eam s.
