App: Web Locator

"Web Locator" is a special plugin which can be embedded to any other application or website and allows track user's objects on the map in real-time.


The following HTML texts is used to show on the map the objects from demo account:

<iframe src="" 
        width="900" height="400">


To start using the Weblocator user needs to acquire the GENERATED_KEY value. He or she can copy this value from their private user area in the Web-interface or use appropriate API call. Once user generates the key value, it won't expire and can be used till user generates the newer key.

Insert the following HTML text on any web-page you require using the GENERATED_KEY value.

<iframe src="" 
        width="900" height="400">
