This session takes you through an in-depth look at the HTML 5 Geolocation API. We'll nail down what it is and how to use it effectively. Our tips and tricks will save you a ton of time. We'll demonstrate those key concepts through real-world demos that will also take you to the next step and show you several ways to analyze and make sense of the data.

Brian Capouch (Saint Josephs College)
Pastfinder is a prototype system developed by the software engineering class at Saint Joseph's College to keep track of a wide variety of geolocated historical assets. Based on Open Source tools, it was used to develop an online "virtual cemetery" which represents Independence Cemetery, a large pioneer graveyard in Jasper County, Indiana.
