Geofences

Geofences can be used to define areas of interest. They can be used to provide a particular location with a meaningful name in reports, or alerting to vehicle movements in or out of an area.


Circular Geofences

Circular geofences can be created with a defined radius, centred on a specific latitude and longitude.

We provide a number of different ways of creating a new circular geofence:

  1. Centre on a postcode
  2. Draw a circle on a map
  3. Use an existing location visited by a device
  4. Enter the lat and lon

Polygonal Geofences

Polygonal geofences can be created where circular geofences are not appropriate. For example, an irregular shaped geofence can be created around a storage compound, where accurate logging is required, but the compound is spread over a large area and a circular geofence would be too large.

Another benefit of polygonal geofencing is to identify when vehicles enter congestion charging zones, such as the one in London.
