I am a newbie in GIS and want to implement something like a vehicle tracker wherein I will get a series of coordinates in a database.
I have no idea how to go about it, I mean what should my process consist of? I have found something about GeoJSON, but since I'm using GWT should I be really using it? I guess I can directly interact with the Java data structure.
Apart from that, how to initiate the loop for animation? I have seen rotate and move methods in openlayers, but would they suffice in case of a complex motion like vehicular movement.
