I’d like to have GPS functionality added to my OpenGeo Suite Client SDK application.

From what I understand it should be possible to use the Geolocate control from OpenLayers. Preferably there would be a checkbox (placed on map.tbar) with the option of continuous tracking. If that’s not possible, a button that gets the current position would do as well (like this example).

How would I go about incorporating Geolocate?


  • I found this, seems to work well. – Markus Jul 3 '13 at 8:57

You would create a custom plugin where the checkbox would be your action. See http://suite.opengeo.org/opengeo-docs/apps/plugincreate/ for a tutorial.

  • Thanks, with the help of the github files I linked to and the plugin tutorial I'll probably be able to get something pretty close to what I want. – Markus Jul 8 '13 at 10:19
