Local based ad. I don't think you have tough what your asking. Local an state, a city, country....? The short is to make several groups breaking do your areas. Then make a playlist to match that area.

There is no dynamic GPS support on Xibo.

You can associate a GPS location (lat/long) manually with a display and
then use that in the calculations for displaying a dataset but it can't be
used to control scheduling of layout etc

I don't wanna schedule so thats not a problem.

But I wanna show the ads according to latitude/longitude.

So you mean I can set the GPS location on player manually?

But without a GPS device how it will detect that lat/long?

Thanks

Please read my first answer carefully.

There is a place in the CMS you can manually enter a latitude and
longtitude for the display, but it CANNOT be updated dynamically by a GPS
device on the client, NOR can it be used to alter the scheduling of a
client. It can only be used in the formulas associated with datasets.

As I said before, Xibo has NO support for location based scheduling. You
can't do what you want.

Ok, I understand. Thanks for your answer.

Is there a another Open Source Singnage platform that allows the location
based scheduling?

Thanks
