W3C Geolocation

With your permission, W3C Geolocation lets websites use your location information to improve their services. IE attempts to retrieve your location from a Microsoft service that uses your IP address, and WIFI data, if available. A GPS device is not used, unless you are on a mobile device.
Clicking the button below will call the W3C Geolocation API navigator.geolocation.watchPosition(). IE will then ask you whether or not you want to give this website access to your physical location. If you choose to allow access to your location, then it will use the Bing Maps API to show you your location on a map.
