    HTML5 Geoloaction

    HTML5 GeoLocation

    I know there's an app for this but I would like to learn how to do this.
    When I upload my code onto the server it can find where I am in realtime with geolocatin.
    But if I would like to monitor someone using the geolocation, how would I go about doing ths??
    Do you need to download a Google API or something??

    So if I am currently at location A and personXY is at location B. If I was to look at my monitor, how do I see personXY on google map in realtime.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.


    Here's my code, that only monitors myself
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html>

       var MAX_AGE = 1000;           
       var HIGH_ACC = true;          
       var ZOOM = 10;
    
       var watchID; 
       var map;                      
       var mapMarker;                
    
       
       window.onload = function (){
          if (navigator.geolocation) {
             watchID = navigator.geolocation.watchPosition(show_map, errorCheck, {
             maximumAge: MAX_AGE,
             timeout: TIMEOUT,
             enableHighAccuracy: HIGH_ACC 
          });
          }else {
             alert("Oops, Geolocation Not Supported.");
          }
       }
       
       
       function stopWatch(){
          if (watchID) {
             navigator.geolocation.clearWatch (watchID);
          }
             watchID = null;
       }   
        
        
       function errorCheck(error){      
          switch(error.code){

    Most websites determine geo-location by the user's IP address. There are look-up tables available online that you can use that are reasonably accurate. There are also commercial services with better accuracy. A trip to your favorite search engine should help you find them.
