    Polaris - Low Cost GPS Tracking System

    CloserWorlds introduces Polaris, a low cost product / service for
    tracking an object's physical location in real-time over the Internet
    and displaying its position on a geographical map. Polaris can be used
    to track vehicles on the road, ships, planes, trains, humans and even
    animals. It is a generic system that consists of an XML web service
    and software running on a client's computer.

    Hardware located on the tracked object transmits the location
    periodically to the web service which forwards it to the customer's
    machine. CloserWorlds offers a complete vehicle tracking system built
    on Polaris providing the lowest cost tracking on the market for
    companies who want an entry-level product without investing much money
    up-front.

    Polaris is built using Microsoft .NET technology and can be customized
    by any programmer to meet special business requirements. Polaris was
    entirely developed in C#. The client software ships with support for
    Microsoft MapPoint and OziExplorer but can be programmed to interface
    with any mapping software or business application. Multiple vehicles
    (or any object) can be displayed on multiple maps simultaneously.
    Polaris is also designed to work with any hardware device since it
    contains no proprietary interfaces to any specific hardware.
    Dates/times are stored in UTC format (Universal Time Coordinate) and
    textual data can be stored in multiple languages.

    The Polaris web service costs a minimum of $15 a month which
    guarantees tracking a single vehicle every 15 minutes, 8 hours a day,
    6 days a week.

    For more information on Polaris, see www.closerworlds.com, or call +49
    711 838 5038 (Germany).

    CloserWorlds is also looking for distributors worldwide. Contact
    CloserWorlds if you are interested in selling and providing product
    support in your country.
