Reverse of custom LiveTracking
I'm a long-time happy user. Sometimes I'm using custom live tracking (when we organize horse rides and I am providing a service car) to follow the horse lot on a map (to find them to make pictures or prepare refreshment stop :-) ). I have my own server that gets lot's position by POST requests and shows that on a google maps.
But GMaps are quite data hungry for cell connection on viewer. It would be very nice to be able to get the position back with a POST request repeatedly and E.G. update a POI with position returned in JSON and shoe that on the map?
I know that this could be done with the new premium tracking, but I'd like to have it on my own server (privacy, my customized functions and so on).
I can share my impementation of the tracking server, but it is just a very simple set of PHP scripts, MySQL DB + Google API connection with manual DB user / trackee management.
