Hey all, first post here. Had an idea for a feature on a map and was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction maybe even to just what search terms I should look for to accomplish.
Recently started a job as a freeway service patrol driver. When dispatch calls us we have to give our location along a section of freeway. Well I do not always know where the heck I am! So I though could I set up a map view that would always tell me where I am based on my custom parameters that I set up.
For Example If I am on the 18 freeway heading east and pass under and go past the Main street over crossing my screen would say “18 East - East of Main”
Then when I was approaching Riverside Drive crossing it would say “18 East East of Riverside”
Then as I travel along the text will just keep updating with my descriptions according to my location on the map.
What am I describing here? Like a custom zone thing? A geo fence?
Any and all input would be appreciated.
