GPSWeb Extension for Mozilla Firebird Opens Possibilities for Location-Specific Web Services
Wednesday December 24th, 2003
Davide wrote in to tell us about GPSWeb 0.1.2, an add-on for Mozilla Firebird that adds a
User-Location header to every HTTP request containing the user's current position as determined by the Global Positioning System. Sites can then use this data to provide location-specific services, such as supplying directions to the nearest restaurant. The extension requires the user to have some GPS hardware connected to their computer (Davide tested GPSWeb with the Garmin E-Trex) and the GPSd Java daemon, which parses the data supplied by the GPS unit, to be running.
