Im looking for a way to periodically send my geolocation to an application i'm gonna host on a remote server. I've never implemented anything like this before but after researching online all morning this seems to me the simplest way to do it:
- Purchase a suitable gps reciever
- Set up an account with a third party GPS tracking service to which the reciever can push it's geolocation data
- The web app would then pull the geolocation data via some REST api the tracking service provides
Is any of this technically feasible?Is there a superior solution I should consider?Could anyone point me in the direction of a gps tracking service that offers such an api? What about self-hosting the gps server using an open source solution?
