Join us for an insightful webinar on the innovative interconnection of Azure Maps and ThingPark, where we will explore how to implement visitor tracking and heatmap solutions for various applications like events and tradeshows using LoRaWAN and Azure technology.

In this webinar, we will begin with a quick introduction to LoRaWAN, its usefulness for indoor/outdoor campus geolocation, and a brief overview of the components involved, such as Abeeway trackers, the network powered by the ThingPark Enterprise together with the Azure connector, Azure IoT Hub, and Azure Maps. Our expert speakers will provide valuable context and insight on how geolocation can go beyond a simple dot on a map, offering powerful analytics when combined with the right tools.

Throughout the webinar, we will cover the step-by-step process of feeding LoRaWAN data to Azure, initializing Azure PubSub and Azure Maps building blocks, and integrating these components to create an effective heatmap solution. We will demonstrate live data feeds and discuss how working with ThingPark and Azure-certified devices simplifies the data flow, allowing for seamless integration with Azure IoT Hub. Our speakers will also emphasize the importance of using the right building blocks to enable sophisticated analytics and create a comprehensive solution. By the end of the webinar, you will have gained an understanding of how to leverage LoRaWAN and Azure technologies to track visitors and create heatmaps for various applications, including tradeshows and events.
