Location

Locations and Surfaces

Surfaces can have a location "stamped" onto them. When you stamp the location (via the 'Details + Tools' panel), your browser will ask you to allow fltspc to see your location. Click "Allow", and the location of the surface will be set.

Why stamp a location?

This information is stored when you 'stamp' a surface with a location, and for the duration of your session when you have 'auto location' enabled. When you look for nearby surfaces, your location is also sent to fltspc, but it is not saved.

Your browser will ask you to allow access to your location. If you disallow access, location features will not work
