Geofencing Extension API Developer's Guide

Test Geocoordinates

To test whether a set of geocoordinates are within a set of geoshapes available to the Geofencing Extension API, send the following GET request.
Note: The above example assumes you have uploaded the following shape file to the service.

1  Alexanderplatz  AL  POLYGON((13.41252 52.52228,13.41426 52.5221,13.41522 52.52113,13.41227 52.51981,13.41252 52.52228))
The response to the above request includes the following high level elements:
  • List of geoshapes (called geometries in the response) with the distance between the geocoordinate and the closest border of the geofence (a negative value indicates the position is inside, a positive value outside of the indicated shape).
  • Metadata about the request

    "attributes": {
