51Degrees Geo-Location PHP  4.3

51Degrees Geo-Location for PHP

cloud/webIntegration.php

This example demonstrates how to get location information from the device that a user is using to access a website. In addition, JavaScript is used to update the page with postal address details for this location.

This works by using the client-side evidence feature of the Pipeline. Briefly, properties containing JavaScript snippets are populated by engines in the Pipeline and these are then bundled together into a single JavaScript block by the 'JsonBuilder' and 'JavaScriptBuilder' elements. This JavaScript is then used to obtain the additional evidence from the client (in this case, latitude and longitude) and pass it back to the server. The Pipeline running on the server then processes this evidence to populate a new JSON result object that is returned to the client.

This example is available in full on GitHub.

To run this example, you will need to create a resource key. The resource key is used as shorthand to store the particular set of properties you are interested in as well as any associated license keys that entitle you to increased request limits and/or paid-for properties.

You can create a resource key using the 51Degrees Configurator.

When the button below is clicked, JavaScript running on the client-side
will be used to obtain additional evidence (i.e. the location information
from the device). If no additional information appears then it may
indicate an external problem such as JavaScript being disabled in
your browser.

<p>
Note that the accuracy of the information is dependent on the accuracy
of the location data returned by your device. Any device that lacks GPS
is likely to return a highly inaccurate result. Among devices with GPS,
some have a significantly lower margin of error than others.
