Project Description

I need an online GPS platform developed. This is a very simplified platform in opposed to the ones out there. What I need is a platform that would be able to use my own mapping data in this manner:-

1. There must be some sort of way to upload my mapping data, even if it is simply FTP
2. We have GPS Tracking devices that interact with the platform, they are connected to the platform through a port, IMEI etc, and use GPRS. How it works now is that a SMS message is sent the the SIM card in the GPS Tracking device, the device understands that the command sent means "I need to connect, or use my connection to the server (GPS platform) and (I'm guessing) send my Lat and Long to the server". The server now receives this information, does a reverse geocode using my map and sends back the street names etc as some sort of message so it can be used as a SMS from the GPS Tracking device. The GPS tracker now receives the data from the platform and sends the location (street name, landmarks etc) back the requesting mobile phone that sent the command in the first place. The GPS device does what it supposed to do, we just need the platform done.

I have the protocol for the GPS device itself.

The code must be open source, clean, efficient etc.
