The Geofencing API by the World Wide Web Consortium is a type of geolocating API. Geofencing API allows apps to create geographic boundaries around a specific location, and then receive notifications when a device leaves or enters the designated area. This differs from the W3C's Geolocating API in that it can be more power efficient by receiving notifications when a boundary is breached, rather than needing to be continuously checked or refreshed. The Geofencing API can also receive notifications even after the app has been closed. Developers should note that this document is a work in progress and may change. See the project page for a detailed description of current issues and methods.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
