I'm doing a project on vehicle tracking using GIS - for that I'm using the open source software package QuantumGIS (QGIS).

I would like to know how to customise QGIS using the python console to edit the point shape file geometries. I want the point file to get updated as the location of the vehicle changes.

QGIS alread has a GPS tracker tool. There is no need to develop something from scratch.
