Geolocation with Google Maps and Google API's

Geolocation has become an increasingly important part of the mobile app experience. We use geolocation based apps for everything from ordering dinner to reporting an emergency. While there are many API's and databases for geolocation information, Google Maps and Google Places is far and away the most used and most powerful. In this session, you'll become familiar with both Google Maps Javascript API and the Google Places API as an HTML5/Javascript based mobile app is created to locate, map, and provide information about local restaurants. Along the way, you'll learn how to access the Maps API, send current geolcocation information from device and display a local map. You'll also learn how to drop location "pins" on the map and display information about map locales from the Google Places API. After this session you should be ready to build your first geolocation based applications.
