Abstract

Let’s say you want to create a web application that offers discounts and special deals on running shoes in stores that your application’s users are within walking (or running) distance away from. Using the Geolocation API, you can request users to share their location and, if they agree, you can provide them with instructions on how to get to a nearby store to pick up a new pair of shoes at a discounted rate.
