Elocation is meant as a convenience library to ease application developers
the usage of geo information in their apps. Adding a geo tag to a picture or
translating an address to a GPS position and show it on a map widget are just
some of the use cases.
In the beginning elocation will rely on the GeoClue1 DBus service. Supporting
the new GeoClue2 DBus service is planned and worked on. GeoClue offers
providers for various techniques to get hold off the current position. Ranging
from GeoIP over wifi and GSM cell location to GPS.
This has been developed a while ago and was living in my private dev space.
It is about time to move this into EFL and bring it forward.
The detection of the GeoClue service is being handled on runtime and no new
dependency is added due to this library.
