    Restrictions Webbased GPRS Track & Trace

    Hi,

    I know there is a lot of discussion and also for me it is absolutely not clear what is allowed. Since we would like to sell our solutions it is important to have a clear understanding what is allowed.

    I made some hardware with dead reckoning GPS , that stores all data on compact flash .
    Occasionally I want to track also real time by GPRS.

    I used Mappoint 2004 to make a stand alone system to track by GPRS.

    First question : If the delay is > 15 seconds , what are then the restrictions for stand alone version?

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The software puts the map regulary as a webpage on a server ...

    Second question : Is this OK? How many vehicles , users are allowed?


    Thanks for info!!!!

    The only real way to know for sure would be to contact MS at maplic@microsoft.com .

    Latest answer from Microsoft about Track& Trace Restrict

    Hi Eric,

    I got an answer from Microsoft.

    I understand that up to 1000 times using of the maps is OK.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Yes, you can publicly show a static image produced by MapPoint 2004, up to 1000 times

    Hi,



    1) If the delay is >15 seconds then it is not considered real time, and no special restricions apply.



    2) MapPoint 2004 is not desinged, or licensed as a server applicaiton. The MapPoint web service is specifically designed for web based applications.

    Dear sir,





    I know there is a lot of discussion about mappoint 2004 and also for me it is absolutely not clear what is allowed. Since we would like to sell our solutions it is important to have a clear understanding what is possible.

    I made some hardware with dead reckoning GPS , that stores all data on compact flash .


    Occasionally I want to track also by GPRS. (with delay of 30 seconds , so no real-time)



    1/I used Mappoint 2004 to make a stand alone system to track by GPRS.

    My first question : If the delay is > 15 seconds , what are then the restrictions for a stand alone version?





    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------





    2/ I also used Mappoint 2004 to make a webbased tracking system.

    The software can put a map on demand as a webpage on a server ... ( also with delay of 30 seconds , so no real-time)

    Second question : Is this OK? How many vehicles , users are allowed?









    Can you please give clear answers because nobody is sure when reading the EULA….



    If there are some restrictions with the above programs , what can we do to use it anyway?( We don’t want to use Mappoint.NET)


    Thanks for info!!!!

    Best regards,

    Wim
