I'm creating an AJAX script with PHP, and JS.

The PHP takes GET parameters, returns some data from the database. I need this data to be usable through javascript. My php verison < 5.2 so I dont have JSON encode. So far i've been able to get PHP to format a JSON array, the data looks like the following


The first key is a uuid then the following key is another array with latitude and logitude.  I need to extract this information from javascript.
function get_map()
	var distance = $("#distance").val();
	var sort = $("input[name='sort']:checked").val(); 
	var who = $("input[name='who']:checked").val();
	$.getJSON("ajax/ajax_get_locations_map.php",{distance: ""+distance+"",who: ""+who+"",sort: ""+sort+""}, function(data){
		var obj = (data);
		$.each(obj, function(i, val) {
		     //need help at this point to get variables

you can do this:

for(var uuid in data) {
    var lat = data[uuid].lat;
    var lng = data[uuid].lng;
//Here's what your json string looks like formatted, revealing the structure a little better
