Geofencing Extension API Developer's Guide

Map Layers as Geofences

Geofences can be custom defined objects, but Geofencing Extension API also allows to geofence on all map content. Examples:
  • Check whether the asset is in woodland, builtup, lake, ocean, park, hospital, beach or airfield. Therefore geofence against the corresponding PDE cartographic polygon layers.
  • Check whether the asset is close to a restaurant, hotel, train station or fuel station. Therefore geofence against the corresponding PDE Point of Interest layers.
  • Check whether the asset is on or close to a railway line, small river line or country border line. Therefore geofence against the corresponding PDE cartographic line layers.
  • Check whether the asset is on a motorway, federal road, small road or pedestrian path. Therefore geofence against the corresponding PDE road geometry layers, and join PDE road information layers.
Please refer to the PDE Developer Guide for available layers. Geofencing on maps uses the same resources as geofencing on custom polygons, but a different service endpoint.
