Geofencing is a location-based service that uses GPS to create virtual boundaries around a real-world location. When a user enters or leaves the boundary, they receive a notification. Geofencing can be used for a variety of purposes, such as sending targeted marketing messages or keeping track of employees.
There are a few requirements for geofencing:
-A GPS-enabled device: This could be a smartphone, tablet, or even a tracking device attached to an object.
-An app or software that uses GPS coordinates: This could be a geofencing app, such as Google Maps, or a more general GPS tracking app.
-A set of GPS coordinates: These can be entered manually, or pulled from a database or map.
-A Geofence: This is the virtual boundary that will be created around the real-world location.
