Detailed Description#

The Qt Positioning API provides positioning information via QML and Python interfaces.

Currently the API is supported on Android, iOS, macOS, Linux, and Windows (with GPS receivers exposed as a serial port providing NMEA sentences or using Windows.Devices.Geolocation).


The Qt Positioning API gives developers the ability to determine a position by using a variety of possible sources, including satellite, or wifi, or text file, and so on. That information can then be used to for example determine a position on a map. In addition satellite information can be retrieved and area based monitoring can be performed.
