How does it work?

Its as easy as this:

You need a free quoox|TRACKER API Key to get access to this service. Register a free key here!

All update and query processes work with simple web requests. These links start from: http://quoox.net/tracker/control/

update.php This link is used to update positions. You should not update more often than every 5 seconds. You have to provide this script with the following parameters:
  • quid: quoox ID of a registered tracker ID.
  • tid: tracker ID for the corresponding quid.
  • lat: Latitude value in decimal degree format.
  • lon: Longitude value in decimal degree format.
  • alt: Altitude in meters.
  • spd: Speed in meters per second.
  • dir: Direction in degree. Integer values from 0 to 359!
  • cep: Circular Error Probable in meters. Half of the positions fall within a circle of this radius centered on truth, half lie outside this circle.
  • key: Your quoox|TRACKER API Key.

Decimal separator is a dot no comma!

This script always returns a single character/status code: 1 update ok, 0 failed to update, -1 System temporary down, -2 Wrong API key

query.php This link is used to query position data for a specific tracker id. You have to provide this script with the following parameters:
  • quid: quoox ID of a registered tracker ID.
  • tid: tracker ID for the corresponding quid.
  • key: Your quoox|TRACKER API Key.
This script returns a XML dataset (corresponding with parameters for update.php, UTC times), containing latest position data if there is one. If the API key is wrong, this script returns "-2" only.
