IoTWireless / Client / get_position



Get the position information for a given resource.


This action is no longer supported. Calls to retrieve the position information should use the GetResourcePosition API operation instead.


This operation is deprecated and may not function as expected. This operation should not be used going forward and is only kept for the purpose of backwards compatiblity.

Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • Position (list) –

      The position information of the resource.

      • (float) –

    • Accuracy (dict) –

      The accuracy of the estimated position in meters. An empty value indicates that no position data is available. A value of ‘0.0’ value indicates that position data is available. This data corresponds to the position information that you specified instead of the position computed by solver.

      • HorizontalAccuracy (float) –

        The horizontal accuracy of the estimated position, which is the difference between the estimated location and the actual device location.

      • VerticalAccuracy (float) –

        The vertical accuracy of the estimated position, which is the difference between the estimated altitude and actual device latitude in meters.

    • SolverType (string) –

      The type of solver used to identify the position of the resource.

    • SolverProvider (string) –

      The vendor of the positioning solver.

    • SolverVersion (string) –

      The version of the positioning solver.

    • Timestamp (string) –

      The timestamp at which the device’s position was determined.
