Maps, GPS and Beacons
GPS and location-based features
We specialise in building with GPS and location-based technologies, including:
We work with a variety of map services to provide interactive maps within our platforms. The service we use depends on the project requirements. Google Maps is usually the preferred provider, however, we also work with MapBox and Ordnance Survey maps where an extra level of detail is required.
What This Could Mean for Your Platform
The Sports Stadium Example
One example could be at a sports stadium – use maps to direct the user to your location. Once they arrive at the stadium you could send a welcome message or advertisement, and unlock information about the game. Geo-fencing could be used to detect that they were at the stadium and allow the user to participate in game-day competitions and events. Meanwhile, users who are outside the stadium could simultaneously be sent real-time match updates by push notification, without interfering with those at the game.
Tour Tag Loyalty App
We worked with Tour Tag to develop a first of its kind, location-based loyalty app for golf players. The app allows users to collect loyalty points for every round of golf they play using a location-based check-in feature. These points can then be exchanged for rewards within the golfing industry.
