What Is Esri Tracking Server?

Esri Tracking Server provides the ability to monitor entities that are moving or changing in real time. Data from any real-time data source can be received by Tracking Server, which serves as a centralized hub for collection and dissemination of real-time data. Real-time processing and analysis can be performed at the point of data reception by applying actions. From Tracking Server, real-time data is sent to Web and Desktop client applications, and it can also be logged to ArcSDE.

Tracking Server can deliver real-time information to two different client applications out-of-the-box: The ArcGIS Tracking Analyst extension and Tracking Viewer. Tracking Analyst is an extension to ArcGIS for Desktop. Tracking Viewer is a Web-based real-time viewing application included with Tracking Server. Several Tracking Client APIs are also available on a wide range of platforms, allowing you to build custom tracking Web applications that display real-time data. The Tracking Client APIs can be downloaded from the Tracking Server Resource Center.
