Advances in GPS (Global Positioning System) technology and wireless communication have introduced new grounds for applications in tracking systems. In addition, the rapid proliferation of the internet as a ubiquitous network to share and exchange information has created a new channel to reach clients or businesses. This has enabled the integration of disparate technologies into one system: an innovative tracking system that provides its users with a real-time monitoring method from any web-enabled device. This thesis explores the development of a GPS-enabled tracking system implemented on a Web services architecture. Web services building blocks will be described from a technical and business perspective with special emphasis on the viable business model that can be adopted by potential Web services providers.
