Ignition Community Live with Corso Systems
With Perspective geolocation data is easier to capture than ever before. Using the built-in map components you can build powerful interfaces for tracking people and assets. We will discuss how to use the map components with the Perspective app for mobile device tracking, and third-party GPS units to geolocate people and devices without the Perspective app. Use cases will include geofencing, to alert when devices are in a particular location, including pulling up a corresponding HMI screen for a technician at a remote location, tracking asset movement throughout the world using historized data sent via MQTT, integrating geolocation data with EXIF data from images to display images on the map at the correct coordinates, and tracking the spread of Covid-19 with a Perspective app.
