Today's mobile devices have GPS and standard APIs to give you to coordinates - but what can you do with that data? With this concise book, application developers learn how to work with location data quickly and easily, using Node.js, CouchDB, and other open source tools and libraries. Node.js makes it simple to run event code on the Web, and the document-oriented lets you store location data and perform complex queries on it quickly. You'll learn how to get started with these tools, and then use them together to build an example called MapChat, using and JavaScript code samples.
