What is a Geofence?
A geofence is a virtual fence or perimeter around a physical location. Like a real fence, a geofence creates a separation between that location and the area around it. Unlike a real fence, it can also detect movement inside the virtual boundary.
It can be any size or shape, even a straight line between two points.
Geofences are created using mapping software, which allow the user to draw the geofence over the desired geographic area. It is made up of a collection of coordinates (i.e., latitude and longitude) or in the case of a circular geofence one point that forms the center.
Geofencing in fleet management
When integrated with fleet management and telematics solutions, geofences can be used to alert you via text message in near real time if a vehicle or valuable piece of equipment with a GPS tracker attached is removed from your yard without your authorization.
