Hi there,

I was wondering if Limesurvey can save GPS coordinates obtained after clicking a link with a Javascript? I can get the coordinates to show in a Text display type of question but could not manage to get the two lines to be saved.

Maybe some of you are aware of a workaround available.

attached see lss file with one group and question with the script

Best,

Marcis

Hi,

use an equation type question to read the text field (with EM). The result of the equation will be stored.
And: may be it is possible to poke your data directly to an equation type question.
Best regards/Beste Grüße,

Thanks for your reply but apparently my skills with javascript are too weak and I cannot implement your propsed solution.

Sorry, apparently the lss file was not attached. Here it is again.



What I was trying to do was to implement one of these solutions:

Still no file attached but here's an example using your first link in a short-text question.

Add this to the question source (I used a button element to fire the geolocation function):
<button class="gpsLink" type="button">Get GPS Data</button>
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
 
	$(document).ready(function(){
 
		// Identify this question
		var q1ID = '{QID}';
		var q1 = $('#question'+q1ID);
 
		// Click event for the button
		$('.gpsLink').click(function(){
			getGPS();
		});
 
		function getGPS() {
			if (navigator.geolocation) {  
				navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(showGPS, gpsError);
			} else {  
				$('input.text', q1).val('No GPS Functionality');  
			}
		}
 
		function gpsError(error) {
			alert('GPS Error: '+error.code+', '+error.message);
		}
 
		function showGPS(position) {
			$('input.text', q1).val(position.coords.latitude+', '+position.coords.longitude);
		}
 
	});
</script>

Here's a test survey:

Excellent! works as I imagined how it should work. Perhaps this could be added to workarounds?

Thanks,

Sure, we could add it but I'm hesitant given that it won't work in IE 7-8.

Hello. Thank you very much for your contribution.
I would automatically save the GPS coordinates, without the button. Is it possible?

This will fire the getGPS() function when the page is loaded.

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
 
	$(document).ready(function(){
 
		// Identify this question
		var q1ID = '{QID}';
		var q1 = $('#question'+q1ID);
 
		function getGPS() {
			if (navigator.geolocation) {  
				navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(showGPS, gpsError);
			} else {  
				$('input.text', q1).val('No GPS Functionality');  
			}
		}
 
		function gpsError(error) {
			alert('GPS Error: '+error.code+', '+error.message);
		}
 
		function showGPS(position) {
			$('input.text', q1).val(position.coords.latitude+', '+position.coords.longitude);
		}
 
		getGPS();
 
	});
</script>

Hello,

Thank you very much for your effort, it looks like everybody else can work it out with your sample survey. I also tried to do it with your sample survey [limesurvey_survey_geolocation.lss ], but nothing shows in the text box after clicking the button, although a pop-up window shows up and asking for permission to get the location. Do you have any idea on this? I can get the location in Google map so I guess it's not the signal problem.

I also tried it on both android device and IPAD but it's still not working.

Thanks a lot.

The survey was developed for LS 2+. Please upgrade your installation.

Thanks for you reply. Is there any way I can get the GPS coordinates without an upgrade?

I tried to copy the two functions getGPS and showGPS to the lss file by the version 1.91 and then import back to LS but no luck..is there any way you can help to modify the lss file attached? It would be great if the lime survey can automatically save the GPS coordinates and store the coordinates as a variable.

I am attaching a sample survey generated by limesurvey Version 1.91+ Build 11379.

I'm sorry, I cannot develop or test for 1.92 - it's too old.
