I am able to create and display map with location(lat,long) data from database.
"setInterval" used but the map and marker is not changing.
I need to track GPS device with updated lat,long from the database.
upon new data(lat,long) read from the database, the marker should animate to the new location.
objective of the code is to show the realtime position of GPS device on the map.

I am putting my present code below..

please help me,anybody.


What I have tried:

var map;
           var marker;

           function LoadMap()
                <?php include 'latlongmap.php';?>

           function SetMap(latlong)
              map ='map').setView(latlong, 12);

              mapLink = 'OpenStreetMap';
           'http://{s}{z}/{x}/{y}.png', {
           attribution: 'Map data © ' + mapLink,
           maxZoom: 18,
               marker = L.marker(latlong).addTo(map);
               layer.bindPopup('LatLng: ' + layer.getLatLng()).openPopup();

Solution 1

function LoadMap()
    <?php include 'latlongmap.php';?>

That code will render the output of the latlongmap.php file ONCE, when the page is first requested. That output will not change until you reload the page.

If you want to load data from the server without reloading the page, then you need to make an AJAX request.

Thanks Richard for your reply.
I have tried with ajax, it is polling latlon from mysql every 5 secs as i set(I have checked with alert), but no luck yet ,the map layer/marker position not getting updated..

Below is the code I have tried...

function fetchdata(){
url: 'getLatLong.php',
type: 'post',
dataType: 'json',
success: function(response){
// Perform operation on the return value
// alert(response);
var latlon = response
var myMap = setTimeout(setMap,3000)
function setMap(){
var map = new'map' , {center: latlon,
zoom: 14})
// Creating a Layer object
var layer = new L.TileLayer('http://{s}{z}/{x}/{y}.png')
// Adding layer to the map
var marker = L.marker(latlon).addTo(map)
layer.bindPopup('LatLng: ' + layer.getLatLng()).openPopup()
