Geolocation Service

Post by Deon »

Hi

I tried to get my Altitude. Does not work using a Samsung S5. Phone apparently does have this sensor.

Does getting the altitude work at all?

What is Accuracy and Altitude Accuracy for.
Heading and Speed. Is this not calculated based on two points?

Do you have any documentation other than your tutorials which does not touch on altitude at all.

Thanks
Deon

Hello Deon,

How exactly have you tried to get altitude?

[quote:]What is Accuracy and Altitude Accuracy for. Heading and Speed. Is this not calculated based on two points? [/quote]

I believe this is not Appery.io related question, please search online for details.
For example http://stackoverflow.com/questions/93..., http://support.viewranger.com/index.p...,
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15...

Please be more specific and let us know how we can assist you.

Hi Alena

Please refer to your own tutorial.

https://devcenter.appery.io/tutorials...

So if you say what I am referring to is not Appery.io specific, then why is it included in your development environment?

Please read my question. I dont know why that is not clear about what i am asking.

You have a property called altitude. When I map it like lattitude and Longitude, I get a null result. Why?

What does Altitude Accuracy mean? Can you define it. What does Accuracy mean? Can you define it.

Geolocation service in Appery.io is just a visual representation of Cordova plugin: https://github.com/apache/cordova-plu...

ul
lialtitude: Height of the position in meters above the ellipsoid. (Number)/li
lialtitudeAccuracy: Accuracy level of the altitude coordinate in meters. (Number)/li
/ul

altitudeAccuracy: Not supported by Android devices, returning codenull./code

Thank you. I read the documentation. altitudeAccuracy does not work on Android but Altitude should work?

Can I take it then that barring Latitude and Longitude all other features in this plugin is useless? (Speed, Direction and Altitude)

I understand you are only representing this plugin and it is not your code. I just wonder why you would do that since the only features that work is lat an lon, everything else is broken or just does not work?

Hi Deon,

It's geolocation plugin functionality. And Appery.io just passes response parameters to geolocation service.

It's good practice cause of some parameters could be fixed with plugin update and then it will be immediately available in Appery.io app.

Also you can get these parameters and make condition to use it when it will be available.

Regards.
