This plugin is a collection of tools to make you live easier when using geo posistioning. It provides options to easly create maps that are based openlayers and adds some helpers to do some typical things when developing mobile applications.

For instance:

  var options = {
   element: 'map', // id of the div element to render the map in, default is map 
    accuracy: true, // create a circle that indicates the accuracy of the posistion
    compass: true   // use compass to indicate the dirction the device is facing
  var map = new AeroGear.Map(options);
  map.watchPosition(); // start watching the posistion of the device

Or you want the user to define how big the geo fence must be when he comes near his found restaurant:

  var map = new AeroGear.Map();
  // the location of the restaurant
  var restaurant = new OpenLayers.LonLat(5.43, 52.132).transform(
      new OpenLayers.Projection("EPSG:4326"),
  // draw a marker where on the location of the restaurant
  // editable geo fence with an initial radius of 1000 meters
  map.drawGeoFence(restaurant, 1000);
