Positioning QML Concepts

Position information can come from a variety of sources including satellites, wifi, text files and so on. The position is described by the latitude, the longitude, and the altitude in meters. For more information see Geographic Coordinate.

The QML position is stored in a coordinate which contains the latitude, longitude and altitude of the device. The Location contains this coordinate and adds an address, it also has a bounding box which defines the recommended viewing region when displaying the location.

Now that the device has a position, with regular updates the API can determine the speed and heading of the device. It can also define a box or a circle that can produce a notification when the device either leaves or enters that region.

More detailed information retrieving the current position can be found under Location Positioning via QML
