Landmarks Overview

Landmarks are geographical points of interest (POIs) defined by a perimeter. Landmarks can be used as conditions to rules that evaluate a device's proximity to an area. A rule may check if a device has entered, exited, is inside, or outside the landmark. The Landmark API provides some options for defining landmark boundaries using a circle, polygon, or rectangle.
