7. Geolocation Hacks > Hack 61. Use the Geoloqi Service to Build a Geofence

Hack 61. Use the Geoloqi Service to Build a Geofence

With Geoloqi, you can push messages and execute events to a single end user at the moment he crosses into a geofence, dwells within it, or departs the zone. And with the Geoloqi JavaScript SDK you can build a location-aware app that gives the user the ability to build a geofence.

In this hack we will build a simple geofence, a virtual perimeter for a real-world geographic area.[8] We will do this by traveling to our favorite establishments in downtown Austin, Texas. (After all, we needed a good excuse to get out.)

Building a Geofence

As we move from one establishment to the next, we will tag and push the new location up to the Geoloqi service to store the data in a remote datastore.
