The service logs communications between a GPS device and global positioning system satellites to allow analysis and interaction with its history of activity. An application can use the data to track movements and status of the device over time including definition of geozones within which it has reported status. Alerts can be configured based on variations from patterns of device activity accumulated.
API methods support uploading both event and status data exchanged between a a GPS device and a satellite. Methods allow either real-time access to data as it is logged or later retrieval of data accumulated over time. Data logged include most recent and historical position, events logged over time, distance traveled, etc.
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.
