Subject RE: how to get GPS data from requests from gps-enabled devices
Date Tue, 07 Jul 2009 13:27:30 GMT
Many devices that have or use a GPS chip will expose some kind of API for
accessing LBS data.  For example, RIM expose an API to access LBS data from
the BlackBerry.

Also, to access geographic data from geo-tagged images, see information on
extracting Exif data ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exif ).  There are Open
Source Exif readers and APIs available.

Hi Dave,

Currently, it is not possible since HTML 4.0 doesn't provide a mechanism 
to access GPS related data.

Thanks
Mamallan

PS: Proposed HTML 5.0 spec provides Geolocation API to access GPS 
related data from GPS enabled devices.
