How do i go about creating a program that uses location and can display places and events on a real map.
First you need to have the hardware. Are you going to use GPS or mobile network or mobile cell or etc...? Than you just have to parse the latitude and longitude to string with google maps or what fits you best.
get a GPS module and sync its coordinates with google maps via a controller and wireless module to your phone.
make use of HTML geolocation
Which map would you like to use?
can you explain more?
