Secure context

This feature is available only in secure contexts (HTTPS), in some or all supporting browsers.

The GeolocationPosition interface represents the position of the concerned device at a given time. The position, represented by a GeolocationCoordinates object, comprehends the 2D position of the device, on a spheroid representing the Earth, but also its altitude and its speed.


The GeolocationPosition interface doesn't inherit any properties.

GeolocationPosition.coords Read only Secure context
Returns a GeolocationCoordinates object defining the current location.
GeolocationPosition.timestamp Read only Secure context
Returns a DOMTimeStamp representing the time at which the location was retrieved.


The GeolocationPosition interface neither implements, nor inherits any methods.
