GPS Position on Chrome > 50 only with https

Axel Schaefer
Dear all.

Since Chrome version 50, it seems to be that the Geolocation API is only
available if the application is hosted on HTTPS. See this document for

Therefore the Mapbender GPS button will only work if Mapbender is hosted
on a https-Server.

If you host Mapbender on https and access http based WMS-services you
will notice you will notice some Firebug/Developer-Tools entries talking
about "insecure content" if the services are accessed directly.

It is interesting to see how the www-pages emerge to more https.

Comments welcome.
