I am the computer guru for a air medical helicopter company. The helicopters are equipped with gps units that currently send coordinates, air speed, altitude, etc. to a third party that processes the data and displays the info. on their own windows app running here in the office. I spoke with the developer of the GPS units and they said they would send the information to us directly, via FTP, email or in a ILINK format.
We want to be able to use map point to track the position of our aircraft. Updated flight information leaves the aircraft every two minutes. We would need map point to translate the gps information and display the current location of the aircraft.
Can this realistically be done? If so, would what be the best map point solution to use?
Thanks in advance for any insight,
