What is Location Tracking and Geofencing?

Location tracking is the process of receiving geographic location (latitude and longitude) from a user’s device.

A geofence is a virtual perimeter surrounding an area of interest, specified by latitude and longitude coordinates and a radius.

Geofencing is a location tracking service that combines awareness of the user’s location with the user’s proximity to a geofence. A geofence is a virtual perimeter surrounding an area of interest, specified by latitude, longitude, and a radius.

How it Works

Include the Location module in your Tealium for Mobile installation and, with permissions granted, your app continuously tracks user location and automatically adds latitude and longitude to the data layer.

During geofencing, a tracking call containing location data is sent when the transition state of the user changes. Transition state changes include:

  • Entering a geofence
  • Exiting a geofence
  • Dwelling inside a geofence for a period of time

Benefits

The benefits of the Location module include:

  • Track continuous location events of users.
  • Provides opportunities to conduct location-based marketing.
  • High accuracy monitoring for real-time applications
