Abstract: Global Positioning System (GPS) is widely used for vehicle tracking, navigation and also used for tracking Trains. Transmitting the location information of a moving train is challenging work. In this paper a Web Service is proposed to store location and navigation information in to a central server for monitoring the trains. Remote GPS device call this web service for transmitting location and navigation information to the central server. This web service is a bidirectional web service by which you can send and receive train location and navigation information. Remote GPS device can be a PDA, Smartphone or a dedicated GPS device. This web service is developed in c# .net using Visual Studio 2010.
Keywords: GPS, Navigation, Web Service.
