Regarding geofencing, you may find this document relevant:  "Requirements on a location based API”
http://www.scf.io/en/documents/092_-_Requirements_on_a_location_based_API.php

The document lists some geofencing service requirements and surveys existing APIs.  Web APIs need to be cast in different technology than for Small Cells, but the geofencing functions are similar.  And there is need to have accurate handling of location across technologies.

George
