Skyhook Wireless - WiFi Location Finder

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hey guys you know that location finder that's in the Iphone and the Ipod Touch well know you can use it with almost any platform.

This is a cool plugin for firefox to show how it works: http://loki.com/

They also have a cool and simple web api for it if you have it installed

If you want to write your own script for this you need the sdk from skyhook found here: http://www.skyhookwireless.com/developers/sdk.php

This is what I need help with. The docs show example using and include but they supply a dll. I couldn't find much info about the dll calls and I'm really bad at dll calling to.

If someone can get me started or wants to help make a nice plugin/UDF let me know, any comments and questions are welcome.

Here is the SDK/DLL/Docs: http://cyberzerocool.com/wpsapi-2.5.0.02-winxp.zip

You need authentication, you could use my user name and realm:

username: cyberzerocool

realm: cyberzerocool.com

Here's one of their examples:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>

#include "wpsapi.h"

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
    WPS_SimpleAuthentication authentication;
    authentication.username = argv[1];
    authentication.realm = argv[2];

    WPS_Location* location;
    int rc = WPS_location(&authentication, WPS_NO_STREET_ADDRESS_LOOKUP, &location);

  if (rc == WPS_OK)
    printf("%f, %f\n", location->latitude, location->longitude);

    WPS_free_location(location);

    return 0;
}

Yes it was included with the sdk. There is an include file with it too but I don't know how to use it. It is a .h file extention.

You can get the full sdk and documentation on their site: http://www.skyhookwireless.com/developers/sdk.php
