I really love de geolocation series,
Are you going to keep uploading more videos about this series?
Another cool idea, would be the ability to update the map with locations near a user based on their location/ip address, either automatically or with a manual reload. I know this is difficult to do in development, but would love to see this.
Not as difficult as you might think. The HTML5 geocoding API will get you an IP address quickly, so you can send that over as a different param and pass that into the .near() method. This will be a great screencast. :D
Does this series cover displaying the distance between two markers or coordinates?
I mentioned the geocoder gem comes with some calculations methods. One of those is for distance between two points. You can use that, just check the readme.
Let me rephrase my question :)
Does this series cover displaying of route between two markers? Suppose I select Marker A and then select Marker B then the route should be displayed between the two, is this feature covered in this series?
