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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
