In order to create an application to keep track of the device position, it is possible to program a Panel for Smart Devices object with three events (buttons):
The first allows to start the tracking points:
The second one allows to stop the tracking points:
At the end, the GeoPoints can be recovered with GetLocationHistory Method and it would be showed as an SDMAP grid:
&locationCollection = Geolocation.GetLocationHistory(&Today)

Note that the tracking system can be expensive in terms of battery so the tracking operations should be started and ended based on the specific needs of the application.
- In iOS, if the developer wants to do background tracking it is necessary to include the 'location' value to the Background Modes property.
