GPS Location Targeting

What do you think, would this plugin work with the Needle Engine? I don’t want to buy this asset only to find out that it doesn’t work. Or do you have a solution that enables geolocation targeting with your engine?

We have an interactive map example that already does this :slightly_smiling_face:

Planning on adding more to it but that’s already a good base, a few projects have started building geo-positioned experiences with it

(:face_with_monocle: what’s going on with that preview screenshot tho…)

You can combine this with the magnetic compass sensors (there’s a sensors example too) to provide pretty accurate AR experiences (~1-5m location accuracy, depending on where in the world you are).

I was planning to make an geolocated AR example too, but the building blocks are already there :slightly_smiling_face:

am very impressed. where is the functionality documented?

The beauty of working in a browser environment is that many things are actually Browser APIs that you can tap into - it’s insanely easier than e.g. in Unity where to have to first find someone who wrapped whatever functionality in an opinionated package… Really liberating if you ask me :sweat_smile:

The interactive map sample uses the Geolocation API: Geolocation API - Web APIs | MDN

The sensors sample uses the Sensor APIs:

Great :+1:
