The service provides capabilities to upload one-way messaging from remote locations to a feed accessible by others. It transfers message data via satellites of the global positioning system (GPS) to allow hikers and others in remote terrain to report progress and emergency situations to those monitoring the service from distant locations. Messages post to an established feed for access in varying amounts and timeframes suited to specific monitoring needs.
API methods support retrieval of the latest message in a specified feed or all messages uploaded over a specified date range. For more comprehensive access, the API gives access to the most recent 50 messages or the entire feed in pages of 50 messages.
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.
