Table 3-1. 0+ BlackBerry 6+a Has correct implementation, but not completely implemented Other Browser Solutions As I noted, not all browsers support the W3C Geolocation API, and these legacy browsers never will natively. Fortunately, other programmers have taken it upon themselves to do something about it, and wrote wrapper libraries that give these browsers most of the functionality found in the Geolocation API. However, there are differences between these libraries and the W3C Geolocation API which make it a bit more challenging for the developer to write code that will work in all browsers.

AddEvent(window, 'load', InitMap);

A Google Maps Example | 49 The code in Example 4-1 produces a map like that shown in Figure 4-1. I will step through this code in more detail in a moment, but there are several things that should be noted right away: • The application is written in HTML5. • The Google Maps JavaScript API is included in the application by calling it from Google’s site. • There are a couple of utility JavaScript functions that aid in cross-browser compliant event handling.

The background information in the previous chapters is definitely relevant to our discussion on the Geolocation API itself. Understanding, for example, that the latitude and longitude that we retrieve from the user’s browser is in the WGS 84 datum will come in handy. If you have no idea what I am talking about, go back and read (or reread) Chapter 2 so that you have a good grasp on the information we are going to be working with. * It is meant to be a “highlevel interface” so that the developer using it does not need to worry about details such as how the location information is being gathered.
