Creating and Monitoring Geofences

Demonstrates how to create and remove geofences using the GeofencingApi. Monitor geofence transitions and creates notifications whenever a device enters or exits a geofence.

Introduction

Geofencing combines awareness of the user's current location with awareness of nearby features, defined as the user's proximity to locations that may be of interest. To mark a location of interest, you specify its latitude and longitude. To adjust the proximity for the location, you add a radius. The latitude, longitude, and radius define a geofence. You can have multiple active geofences at one time.

Location Services treats a geofences as an area rather than as a points and proximity. This allows it to detect when the user enters or exits a geofence. For each geofence, you can ask Location Services to send you entrance events, exit events, or both. You can also limit the duration of a geofence by specifying an expiration duration in milliseconds. After the geofence expires, Location Services automatically removes it.

To run this sample, location must be enabled.
