HTML5 nGeolocation is used to locate a user’s position

The HTML5 Geolocation API is used to get the geographical position of a user.

Since this can compromise user privacy, the position is not available unless the user approves it.

Use the getCurrentPosition() method to get the user’s position.

The example below is a simple Geolocation example returning the latitude and longitude of the user’s position:

<script>

var x=document.getElementById("demo");

function getLocation()

{

if (navigator.geolocation)

{

navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(showPosition);

}

else{x.innerHTML="Geolocation is not supported by this browser.";}

}

function showPosition(position)

{

x.innerHTML="Latitude: " + position.coords.latitude +"

Longitude: " + position.coords.longitude;

}

</script>
