Geofencing Regions With JavaScript and HERE

When it comes to maps and location services, being able to see if a position is within a particular region is often an important business need. The regions being tracked are known as geofences and they’re not difficult to produce and use.

In this tutorial, we’re going to see how to create a geofence and then determine if a point falls within that geofence using JavaScript in combination with the HERE JavaScript SDK and HERE REST API.
