Location API introduction

The Location API returns detailed SIM location information, such as latitude, longitude, and cell mast information. You can also use it to fetch a compressed Keyhole Markup Language (KMZ) file for use with Google Earth. You can only view information for SIMs that are already linked to your SIAM account.

Eseye makes data available for two months. You must store any historic data you want to retain.
