My geo-location was being displayed as Cambridge (I returned from there on Monday) so I told daniweb to update, which it did, except it now reported me as `Winnipeg, Manitoba - 3,897 miles away`. What am I 3,897 miles away from? Then, when I click on `Member Connect` it says (for example) that I am 46 miles away from aravindc (London, England) so I'm assuming that even though I did the update, part of daniweb still thinks I am in jolly old.

I want to collect basic user information when they land on an index page, such as: IP Country City State Zip Code I've looked into sites such as ipinfo.io that offer a service regarding these details, but think it may be easier to collect the same info via PHP. From some sample PHP code I've looked at, it seems easy and possible. My question is what would generally be a better option: PHP or using a service (the service limits the amount of hits processed per day, 10,000, so that is a consideration)? I am just looking for advice on …

If you use JavaScript for geolocation the first time someone uses it then his browser will ask for permission to send his location to the site where your web page is. As far as I can tell Chrome (PC and Android), Explorer (PC), and native browsers in Android devices only ask once during a session. But FireFox on a PC asks for permission every time the JavaScript wants the geolocation. Is there a way to get over this? I've looked in settings and security but can't see any options to disable the multiple questioning...

Hi folks, I'm newish to android, very inexperienced.

hi there, I just have a few questions about HTML5 and one of its features that is geolocation. My group members and I are thinking to develop a social-networking IOS application that lets you check-in only if you're using a mobile phone. The core idea is that if you're at starbucks or other coffee shops having a cup of coffee and want to rate it, suggest it to your friends on FB or review other peoples' comments on the coffee/s they had, you can use the app to do all that. The IOS app sounds doable. We also want to …

I know there are more accurate geolocation methods, but I want to have it transparent to the user rather than ask them to "allow". I am using a very simple method and it works great on most of the computers I have tried, but on some such as my grandmothers laptop with IE7 I think and Windows XP, as well as a friends MAC, it did not work. I figured that even if the location database came up empty, the else statement should fill in for New York, no? What am I missing? thanks.

I’m working for my client’s website whose business is mainly based in India, and they suggest some keywords for me to start SEO. The keywords are like this [B][COLOR="Red"]Mobile show room Mobile shop[/COLOR][/B] But the problem is they want their website ranking for the keywords based on the city name For example whenever user search for the keywords [B][COLOR="Red"]Mobile show room Bangalore Mobile show room Delhi Mobile show room Chennai[/COLOR][/B] They want their website on the top of the search list. They want to add nearly 25 cities, but the agreement is only for 20 keywords I suggest them to …

I have a question regarding Google Maps integration I am planning for my site. Right now I have a list of approximately 5,000 addresses (Street Address, City, and Zip Code). I would like to add two columns to the table these address are stored in for Longitude & Latitude so that when a user visits a particular location's page, a Google map can be served up with the chosen location being centered on the map with a marker. I've tried reading the API; however, it doesn't seem to me there is a way to submit a request of the address …

Alright kids, I know next to nothing about PHP but I'm interested in geolocation scripts. A couple of months ago, I got a presentation from a company that can target content down to the zip code level (and much more, but that's beside the point). However, what they charge a month is just too much for our campaign's budget and I'd like to see if I could replicate something similar. Everything I've read leads me to believe I'd need PHP. This company, however, gives their clients a simple javascipt code to plop on their site after the user uploads the …

Geolocation features in cameras are giving thieves new information when someone proudly posts a picture of their new acquisition, whether it's a boat, a flat-screen TV, or a new car, according to an [URL="http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/12/technology/personaltech/12basics.html?_r=1"]article [/URL]last week in the [I]New York Times[/I]. Some cameras and smart phones embed location-specific information, such as latitude and longitude, into the metadata, or information, about a picture. Canny thieves can click on the picture, check the metadata, and determine the location of the prize, or just the house or garage full of power tools behind it. Combined with information such as posts about a user’s …

Hello Recently I've been started to get curious about mobile development, specially Geolocation applications, how do they work and stuff... Can anyone point me in the right direction? What should I study, any references and things like that...

Probably just about everyone over 25 remembers the game and show '[URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carmen_Sandiego"]Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?[/URL]' If San Diego were around today (maybe she is, who knows), we would all know exactly where she was because she would broadcast her whereabouts by tying her FourSquare account to Twitter.
