geoCHAT: Chat Room + Geo-location (Try It)
A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post on geo-coding addresses in order to determine map coordinates: it is a useful technique for leveraging the user’s location when building a web or mobile app. I built the following geo location based chat application as a demonstration of what is possible to build. The basic idea behind the application is to allow users to visualize other members on a map in order to provide a more interactive experience.
I had a lot of fun building this, I hope you enjoy.
