Targetted Geolocation with Geonames on PHPMaster

26th December 2011 | Tags:

I haven’t blogged for a while, but I have been writ­ing. I recently wrote an arti­cle for PHP Mas­ter (part of the Site­point fam­ily) on geolo­ca­tion, called Tar­get­ted Geolo­ca­tion with Geon­ames.

The arti­cle looks at how you can use a RESTlike web ser­vice called Geon­ames to take a user’s loca­tion and resolve it to a place name. In the arti­cle, I use the exam­ple of pro­vid­ing a prompt urg­ing the user to go check out the cin­ema list­ings in their local town, what­ever that hap­pens to be.

I’m cur­rently writ­ing another geo-​based arti­cle for the same pub­li­ca­tion, as well as some other arti­cles for here and else­where — stay tuned!
