GPS tracking software is designed to provide customers with increased fleet intelligence. This includes not only knowing where vehicles are, but where they are relative to other things not included in standard mapping (street level, street view, 3D, and terrain). Some GPS tracking companies provide their customers with mapping overlays for these additional things that need to be seen on a map. They can work in both 2D (browser-based) maps or 3D (Google Earth) maps.
GPS Tracking Map Overlays
Basic examples of map overlays include:
- Detailed street overlays for Google Earth
- Cellular coverage overlays
This gives dispatchers and fleet managers better business insight into where their vehicles are located.
More advanced mapping overlays that can be provided are:
- Man hole covers
- Fiber cable lines
- Power lines
- Map sheet grids
- And much more
For example, as an electric co-op, knowing where your vehicles are relative to power lines is very important. This helps improve emergency response to outages and increases overall efficiency and employee safety.
