If you need to read location information from GPS receiver, then have
a look at http://developer.android.com/reference/android/location/LocationManager.html
There are plenty of examples on the Internet also.
If you need to convert postal address into the corresponding longitude-
latitude, then have a look at http://developer.android.com/reference/android/location/Geocoder.html
Once again, there are plenty of examples on the internet.
If I remember it right, the books of Mark Murphy also explain both
with good examples.
