Bing map Live tracking

    Question

  • Hi,

    We are looking for a live tracking solution of Bing map that tracks the user location in real time.

    Here is our use case. We have field service guys who travel to the customer location to provide the services. Being the management, we want to track the live locations of our field service professionals and our customers who will be provided with the services should also be able to see the live location of the service person coming to them.   

    We have gone through the link for Asset tracking solution of Bing maps: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/maps/fleet-tracker

    Please let us know if anyone has implemented the above solution for such kind of scenarios. We would like to understand the same.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Thanks!

    Can you please help us on understand which API is used to live track. For example for getting route we used following API https://dev.virtualearth.net/REST/V1/Routes/ like wise for Live tracking is there any API.

    Thanks!

  • Hi Balasaheb,

    You can call the Geocoder with any point so I am not sure what you need for a "Live Tracking" API.  This is why it is important you contact MapLic@Microsoft.com.

    We do have a full GitHub sample you can use to try tracking cell phones (No special hardware) https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/maps/fleet-tracker
