LoRaWAN Location Lookup

For our location engine to resolve a location it needs a list of hotspots that heard the uplink, location of the hotspot and what signal strength it heard the uplink at.

Note: any hotspots with blank locations will be filtered.

A typical payload looks like:

{
"hotspots": [
{
"lat": 52.23153880933455,
"long": -1.7309963563346425,
"rssi": -113.0,
},
{
"lat": 52.23153880933455,
"long": -1.7309963563346425,
"rssi": -113.0,
},
{
"lat": 52.23153880933455,
"long": -1.7309963563346425,
"rssi": -113.0,
},
]
}

Users can then post a lookup to:

https://v2-api.trackpac.io/location-engine/resolve?api_key=XYZ

Example Result

{
latitude: 0.0000
longitude: 0.0000
geocode: "xyz street, xyz location",
}

},
{
"bssid": "FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FA",
"rssi": -92
}
]
}
