YourLocation

YourLo.ca/tion is a service that allows Search and Rescue agencies to use a lost person's smart phone to find their location. It has some limitations; it needs a good cellular and GPS signal, and access to the internet to transmit the position back to the requesting agency.

This code constitutes the prototype service I wrote over a few days in March, 2013, proving the concept. The entire service is written in Javascript, HTML5 and uses the geolocation API.

I made use of Google Spreasheetts to record the requests and the responses. A script embedded in one of those spreadhseets sends email. Other than the Google Spreadsheets, the code you see here is entriely Javascript and HTML

You can’t perform that action at this time.
