HTML5‘s mightiness, we don’t need to introduce too much. Of which, the Geolocation is one of its important features – providing the function for determining user’s location. With this feature, we can develop cool web apps based on geographical location information (especially by calling the Google Maps interface).

HTML5 Geolocation: Bringing Location to Web Applications was written by Anthony T. Holdener III in 2011. It has only 116 pages (subdivided into 6 chapters), so its orientation is just a booklet for beginners to get started with.

This book introduced most uses of HTML5 Geolocation API in the browser-based web apps, and showed readers its “write once, deployed everywhere” feature through a lot of examples. Its specific contents include: introduction of the basic knowledge of geographic location, Geolocation API’s support situcations in all mainstream web browsers, as well how to use it and other common mapping tools to implement an embedded map similar to the Google Maps.
