TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS

The NaviFeed is based on HTTP queries, which are sent to Foreca servers. Locations are identified by lat/lon coordinates. Replies are XML or delimited ASCII raw data, which is language independent. Customers must relay queries from end users/devices via central proxy servers. Foreca will open access to the query interface only for specified proxy server IP address(es). The service also assumes a random distribution of queries, i.e. it is not allowed to use NaviFeed for batch mode querying of a large number of places in a busy loop. Any batch mode querying must include a 1 s delay between queries (1 QPS).
