We're going to be tracking someone using the Delorme inReach Explorer satellite communicator. It sends its waypoints through a kml file every 10 minutes.
We got it animating using the KML bike demo in Sandcastle, but the issue we're having is with making it "live". Since it sends gps location every 10 minutes, we can't really have a "next waypoint" that cesium knows where to trace the path. So the animation either would restart or stand still until we receive the next waypoint. What we're thinking of doing is parsing our kml file we receive from inReach and adding the latest point at the end and changing the time to 20 minutes ahead, or somehow delay the Cesium clock by 20-30 minutes so it will always have a waypoint to go to next.
Is there an official or easier way to do " live" tracking using inReach?
