Developer information

Developer toolsGpsGate Server is built with modern internet technologies like AJAX, XML/JSON, .NET, MySQL, MS SQL. We are working hard to make GpsGate Server the preferred platform for GPS tracking. Not only as a stand alone product but also as a platform for developers to build on and integrate with other systems. Evidence of our efforts can be found in our open architecture, published database schema, our APIs and SDKs.

As a developer you have the opportunity to add support for new tracking devices, integrate GpsGate Server to other systems, build custom report plugins and add other functionality to GpsGate Server.


GPS Tracking Device integration to GpsGate Server

GpsGate TrackerOne

TrackerOne can be implemented as a software client on a mobile phone, or similar mobile device. Or as a black box tracker device. The TrackerOne reference design is focused on tracker / server interaction and leaves the field open for how the actual software and hardware is designed and implemented.

GPS in Browser

GPS in browser

This feature in GpsGate Client will allow web pages to read the position from a GPS connected to your local computer in a safe and controlled way. This opens up for very cool web applications which can become position aware.

Some example applications are to make a form that automatically includes a GPS position before it is posted to a web server. Or a map displayed in the browser which marks out your current position.

“GPS in browser” uses cross scripting. GpsGate Client runs a small local web server from which your page can request GPS information. A javascript library is included to make this really simple.
