How do I capture Geolocation on mobile phones in server code?

What I need is to grab someone's city and state and have those available as string variables I can then manipulate in my sever code behind.  I code in VB.  Is this possible?  

I don't want to use IP addresses to resolve location information because they are grossly inaccurate on mobile phones.  I would like to use geolocation built into HTML5.  But I don't know how to "capture" this in codebehind.

I know about this URL
http://jquery-ui-map.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/demos/jquery-google-maps-geolocation.html

But I don't know how to then take the city+state (or region/country) information and have it available as variables in code behind.

I basically simply need access to variables  CITY, REGION, COUNTRY  in VB code...or at least (at minimum) the variables LAT and LONG available in the VB code.

How can I do this?

You can post the information from browser to the server side using jquery
