HTML5 GeoLocation Address Form Filler
I have recently filled out an address form and realized that HTML5 GeoLocation could really improve this user experience. Why do I have to fill in my city, state and zip when the browser can figure this all out with the GeoLocation API. Actually, the browser can only retrieve your Geo coordinates but I have already blogged about converting latitude and longitude coordinates to a street address via various APIs. So, it only makes sense to put in a button on an address form which would allow the end user to retrieve that information programmatically. Sure, the street address could be off sometimes but you can always correct the form instead of writing everything from scratch. So, let’s do it.
