GPS Location on map

Recommended Posts

Hey!

Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, I did a search and couldn't see anything.

I've created a map for my client via Snazzy maps (he needed something with a lot of location markers so the normal map widget wouldn't suffice).

He's now asked if it is possible for the users GPS location to be displayed on the map when someone is on the page. I assume it's not possible as there's no option in snazzy maps itself. But wonder if there's a way around that as it's basically taking google maps and adding a skin to it. 

Cheers,
Ian

You can implement this feature using html5 geolocation or using IP detection to get the current user lat-lng and display on the map, snazzy map is only a styling map which is provided via JSON option, the main feature still be google maps

ah OK, so I need to embed some code in my Google Maps API?

Yes I think so

Yeah, just looked into it.

Found the code for geolocation on google maps platform, just need to find out how to implement it in a way that plays nicely with squarespace. Everything I've tried so far doesn't work.

Thanks anyway, you've got me one step closer!
