Getting a location from a string is called Geocoding and there are a number of services offering that. The geocoder from the OpenStreetMap project is called Nominatim and is freely available, you could simply use the API: https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?q=Berlin,+Germany&format=json ✔ https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?q=TX&...

I have looked at tweets to some extent. But not in your area. But I suspect this is down to two types of tweets. Actual tweets that fall into two categories. The correct geolocation with specific precision (see the tweets in the urban area), and town level geolocation (see the stacks in the urban area). Then you have automated tweets. These are the ones ...

Most basic GPS devices have a recording mode that will store a point every so often, so you could try that. Otherwise it depends how far out of town you go, the local topography and vegetation. I generally have little trouble with smartphone GPS within 2-3 hours drive of a city. Steep terrain and dense canopy cover will interfere, so some cross-checking ...

They seem to have an integer overflow error in preparing the data for the takeout (downloading the kml directly from google maps for a specific day works correct). If the number is greater than 1800000000 (for latitude, also comparing to 900000000 would work) you need to subtract 2^32 (=4294967296) and you get the correct latitudeE7 or longitudeE7. Your ...

I assume you're referring to the Fused Location Provider as discussed here: https://developers.google.com/location-context/fused-location-provider/ ...which says: Apps can take advantage of the signals provided by multiple sensors in the device to determine device location. However, choosing the right combination of signals for a specific task in ...

Sadly, you can't. The HTML5 Geolocation API works by using the browser implementation of the spec. Browsers like Chrome will send data to Google servers in order to try to improve the location(Network information, like your IP, as described here), however, that doesn't always happen nor is guaranteed to, the browser/OS may choose what it think is the best, ...

First of all, your data structures are pretty horrible. If you can, try to lose all the lists of lists of lists... I picked the first elements of your list and dictionary below. I recommend using Shapely. from shapely.geometry import * You can create Polygon geometries: something = Polygon(lst_thing[0]['coordinates'][0]) You can create Point geometries: ...

... but without using Internet connection... It depends on the positioning chip in your mobile device, if it was a:- Fully autonomous GPS chip: power-hungry, works without cellular connection, but performs poorly in urban jungle. Fully assisted GPS chip (A-GPS): must download "initialization" data from cellular network/connection, power-saving, performs ...

If wizards are enabled, the Grids and Graticules Wizard in the Data Frame Properties > Grids Tab allows you to set up map grids in an layout. In the wizard, choose the graticule option if you want to display lines of latitude and longitude (parallels and meridians). You can choose the type of graticule that you want, change the appearance, symbols, etc. It ...

In Firefox you can give the geolocation permission per website: I assume that it is the same for other browsers. So while the browser itself can have permission to access the Geolocation API, it could be blocked for your specific application. PS.: I wonder if Internet Explorer even supports the Geolocation API. For Safari, this support article could help.

Here are your options: Join table records based on common id to an existing feature/layer. Manually create a point layer and digitize in the point locations and assign each feature an id common with the table record. Then join table to point layer. Tables can be adding into the software as a standalone table, however the records cannot be symbolized on a ...

You simply can't bypass https. It's a mandatory requirement (with exception of localhost usage) as stated by the Geolocation API documentation (an HTML5 API implemented in all browsers), at least for Firefox and Chrome (see browsers compatibility table from MDN).
