Realtime Location Tracking on a Map in JavaScript


via Realtime Location Tracking on a Map using JavaScript – PubNub.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to get started with realtime location tracking on a live-updating map using the EON framework and the Mapbox API, all in JavaScript. In a nutshell, our application will stream data from a connected user in realtime with their location, and publish that data to a map. As the user moves, their marker on the map reflects their change of location.
