What is a geo-fence and geo-fencing?
A geo-fence or geofence can be looked upon as a virtual perimeter that you can draw around any location on a map.
The use of a geo-fence is called geo-fencing, an example is a location-aware device of a location-based service (LBS) user enters or exits a virtual perimeter / geo-fence. This activity can contain the location of the device, and therefore user, and would be sent to a mobile telephone or an email account.
Geo-fencing can notify parents if a child leaves a designated area for instance.
It can be used in business too, geo-fencing can be used by a HR department to monitor employees working in certain locations, on or off site.
Other applications include sending an alert if say a vehicle is stolen, or notifications if wildlife stray into or out of farmland.
