Networkcar and interLink Logistics have chosen to license Maptuit Server to enhance their asset tracking services. Using Maptuit Server, these asset tracking companies let customers track their assets throughout the North American road network, in either a digital map or web-based report.
The two firms outfit customers with embedded tracking technology that combines GPS-based location determining with a wireless transmitter. As the asset moves about, it periodically transmits its geographic coordinates to the tracking company.These coordinates are then passed to Maptuit Server, which uses a process called reverse geocoding to pinpoint the location of the asset to the nearest street address. This information can then be overlaid on digital maps to show the asset's current location, and the places that asset has been over time.
