I am wondering how you can get access to live points using the API and either Mapbox or a leaflet webmap.
I am able to get JSON request using the ajax return on points.

However i am not sure how to get this show up on a web map.

Is this possible and does anyone have an example on how they are doing this.

    Hi Rod

    We're currently working on a feature that will make it very easy to do what you are suggesting. I can't promise any dates but we expect this feature out in the next few weeks.

    I'll keep this discussion open and will let you know when it's available. You can also keep an eye out for any announcements on our blog.

    Hi Rod,

    I wanted to follow up and say that we've released some functionality that will allow you to get an App's data in GeoJSON. The functionality is called Data Shares and you can read more about it on the blog post: You should be able to use this now to create a leaflet web map like you wanted.

    We hope to have some more examples soon, but you can start taking advantage of this feature now.

    Let us know if we can help with anything else.

    I saw the article on the website and have already started some testing with it.
