    <script type="text/javascript">
        function getMyLocation(){
            if(navigator.geolocation){
                navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(function(location){
                    var myLocation = document.getElementById('myLocation');
                    myLocation.innerHTML = 'Latitude: ' + location.coords.latitude +
                                            ' Longitude: ' + location.coords.longitude;
                });
            }
        }
    </script>
