LocDemo demonstrates the functionality of libwlocate. After startup, it evaluates the current geographic position of the user and displays it within a map. This solution offers geographic localization that works without the use of GPS and without submitting tracking or position data to commercial providers of such services.

Release Notes: Some smaller glitches have been fixed. A package for Ubuntu 64-bit systems has been added. The Android sources have been extended by several service classes for geographical calculations and for showing/moving/scaling maps (using Google Maps, Google satellite, view and Open'StreetMap maps optionally).
Release Notes: Minor bugfixes and code cleanup were done. The size of the Linux variant of libwlocate was decreased. The Android variant was extended to support GPS locations (optionally) to encapsulate all geolocation functions within one easy to use library.
Release Notes: This version fixes several bugs in the Android port of libwlocate, contains some general code cleanups, and makes use of a domain for server access now instead of a fixed IP.
Release Notes: libwlocate and the LocDemo application were ported to Android, allowing the default Android geolocation services to be replaced by a variant with better privacy.
Release Notes: This version contains a tool for recording WLAN information. This information can be loaded in LocDemo later to trace the positions that belong to the stored data.
