Just reading about the MSE (location engine) API, as part of a larger discussion about campus mapping strategies. Has anyone been able to capitalize on the API for any interesting applications?

At Weber State our in house developers wrote an application that records the location of hourly workers clocking in if they are doing so over wireless. When development started there wasn't a single API call to get the current location based on IP address, but I believe such a function was added in the latest version. Feel free to ping me off list if you have more questions but keep in mind that I'm a wireless guy and not a developer so I'll have to play go-between. -Luke =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Luke Jenkins Network Engineer Weber State University
