    App to Monitor Real time applications (GPS)

    I intend to develop a server application/module that monitors/communicates with a gps client positioned in a car. MapPoint 2004 is a close guess for me.

    But in case if it dosent support maps for Australia, I might have to use the MapPoint Web Service which seems to have support.

    I was looking around the web to see how I can build a server application that monitors gps clients, and talks to mappoint 2004 for points of interest. Could'nt find much help. Can some one give me some pointers here. The least I wish to konw is am I right in opting for MapPoint 2004 as a solution.

    Thanks in advance.

    Cheers,

    Afif

    Sorry I'm not sure I understand what your trying to do. If I got it right your trying to determine where a client is based on a GPS address and then tell them what points of interests are close by? Do you plan on doing this in person or streaming the information back to them? Are you thinking of some sort of "ON STAR" thing?

    Stream it back.

    I intend to stream it back. I had an impression if the client app housed in the vehicle has internet access, it can make a websevice call to which it passes the GPS raw data, and that returns it back all the location specific info it needs.

    So I am looking to expose the functionality of my Server App as a webervice, collect raw GPS data from the moving client, interpret that to determine the lat and long, use that to communicate with the Mappoint WebService which returns location specific info, play around with that info as per the client preferences and return it back in that webservice method call that the client made.

    Please let me know if this is feasible or I miss some part of the picture.

    Feedback appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Afif
