I have a small project that I need some help with.
I would like a website that can do the following:
There are around 15 text files sitting on a webserver. These files are updated once every few seconds with a latitude, longitude and speed.
The site will have a drop-down menu that displays the name of these text files (or just a common name). When you open the drop down and click an entry, the map will plot a marker on its location. Every second, the marker will move, but the page won't have to do a full refresh.
It should be very similar to this [url removed, login to view] (but obviously minus the trajectory)
Looking forward to your replies as I haven't used this service before.
