I am attempting to track a vehicle using the Location Tracking feature of Portal with Collector and an iPad. It is currently working and dropping a point of the iPad's location every 30s, however the interval is too large. The large interval does not provide enough detail about the path that the vehilce took.
I haven't found anything about reducing the interval to less than 30s and was wonder if it is even possible with Portal's location tracking and the Collector app. I have also heard that it is possible to continuously track the vehicle with a line rather than points, but have not had any luck with this method.
I should have said, Geo Event processor to be accurate.
It's an extension to ArcGIS Server (AGS) that allows for real time processing of data streams:
At this years UC, the GeoEvent guys mentioned some fairly impressive numbers for data rates.
I believe they mentioned 2KHz (or 2000 events per second) with AGS 10.3.1.
Now in the field of high speed data acquisition, that's low but for mapping solutions?
Here's a free training seminar from AGS 10.2
and a good blog resource that points to a lot more info:
I have not yet set one up, it's on my near term list.
As I understand, It works a bit like Model Builder.
You select Connectors to your data stream and there a bunch of connectors available:
then you can add filters, triggers, geofences etc... and then hook up the data via output connectors to a map, email, file, IM, JSON, sockets, etc....
Not sure how you would hook up an iPad as an input connector.
Most traffic tracking systems that I've seen used have a GPS on the vehicle that is then fed to a proprietary system.
We're looking at trying to get an RSS feed or a TCP socket from our current VTS (vehicle tracking system) so we can display it on a map.
I wasn't even aware that Collector could update at 2 hz.
Best of luck.
