The service provides tracking and monitoring of locations on the earth's surface by satellite processing of signals from a transmitter, either at a fixed station or mounted on a vehicle or other mobile platform. Applications of the satellite monitoring services include observations of oceanic conditions, management of fishing grounds and activities, and monitoring wildlife habitats.
API methods support retrieval of satellite and transmitter positions and processing of tracking data collected by the system. Methods supply locations of transmitters and sensor readings for conditions there along with estimates of error in readings and system diagnostics.
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.
