Hi all

If people talk about Tiny SVG they also talk about:

o SVG for Mobil Phones und PDAs
o Location based Services
o Map Applications (Navigation Systems)

There are already Mobile Phones with build in GPS Modules.
There are also Bluetooth GPS devices with the ability to connect to 
mobile Phones.

...
------------------------

The thing I'm missing is:
---------------start-----------------------
evt.gpsLong    //similar to evt.clientX
evt.gpsLat     //similar to evt.clientY

onGPSmove   //similar to onMouseMove

---------------stop-----------------------

The user should have the possibility to deny access to GPS Data
(similar to deny Cookies)

thanks for reading
