LOKI

Overview

Skyhook was founded in 2003 to capitalize on the increasing demand for location-based services. The first location technologies, GPS and cell tower triangulation, were inadequate - leaving frustrated mobile consumers with slow and inaccurate positioning information. In response, Skyhook developed a software-only location system based on Wi-Fi positioning, GPS and cell tower triangulation.

Task

To implement a website allowing users to register for Skyhook Javascript API key and promoting this technology to web-developers/site owners.

Solution

The portal is based on Symfony 1.0 PHP framework and using Propel ORM to maintain Javascript API registrations. Google maps API is used to display Loki JS API sample code results. Integration with Loki JS API has been performed in order to demonstrate the technology on How it works and Findme pages.

Result

The project has been completed and now is in production.
