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)
Geolocation API• Simple interface to get user location with the help of three functions – getCurrentPosition – watchPosition – clearWatch
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
Geo IP example• Mobile phone ip address is ephemeral?• Latency and traceroute information
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
