CURRENTLOCATION

Returns a location object containing metadata about the user's current location. This location may be different than the record location.

Description

{
  "latitude": 27.822209699105304,
  "longitude": -82.69114932984364,
  "altitude": 15.030448913574219,
  "accuracy": 10,
  "course": 213,

Examples

location = CURRENTLOCATION()

if (!location) {
  // location could not be determined.
} else {
  lat = location.latitude;   // 35.6443171
  lng = location.longitude;  // -80.8984504
  alt = location.altitude;   // 213 - meters above sea level. Negative values indicate below sea level.
  acc = location.accuracy;   // 5 - meters, the accuracy of the latitude and longitude values
  speed = location.speed;    // 3.4 - meters per second
  course = location.course;  // 213 - degrees from due north. 0-359, negative values or `null` indicate invalid values.
  time = location.timestamp; // 1454015950.013456 - epoch time, seconds
