HTML5 Geolocation without SSL connection


HTML 5 Geolocation is used to find out the location of the user. This can be without SSL connection. This can be generated as follows −

// Variable apigeo shows successful location:
var apigeo = function(position) {
   alert("API geolocation success!

lat = " + position.coords.latitude + "
lng = " + position.coords.longitude); }; var tryapigeo = function() {    jQuery.post( "check the location on google map", function(success) {       apiGeolocationSuccess({coords: {latitude: success.location.lat, longitude: success.location.lng}});    }) //Gives success on given geolocation    .failure(function(err) { //On failure, alert with failure is shown       alert("error while showing geolocation!

"+err);    }); };

Then various switch cases for the error codes can be generated, different error codes for different errors.

var tryloc = function() {//tryloc variable show current position
if (navigator.geolocation) {
   navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(
      browserGeolocationSuccess, browserGeolocationFail,{
      maximumAge: 70000, timeout: 40000, enableHighAccuracy: true});
   / /this will show result with high accuracy
}};
