Route extract information to use for geofencing RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I define a route in Bing Maps in the browser can I get/extract the information of the route in a kind of XML file or vector information file or something like this?

    I have to create a geaofencing area around a route. For this the idea is to take the route extract information and to use it to create geofencing squares along the route.

  • You can use the Bing MAps REST services to get the coordinates that make up the route line. If you use this with SQL Spatial tools you can generate a buffer (polygon) around the route that gives you a nice geofence. If you just want to do a search against your own data along a route this is built into the Bing Spatial Data Services.

  • You can vet the list of points that make up a route from Bing maps. You can then use the spatial tools for SQL, they are available as a .net library. With those tools you can turn the list of coordinates into a LineString geometry then buffer it by a certain distance in meters. This will create a polygon boundary that surrounds the route line.
