Using the following API operation a list of existing locations can be retrieved.
The list of locations is initially empty as these are created and maintained by the user (or user group). A location is similar to a position and can e.g. be used when tracking a ship to a destination defined by a location. The advantage of using a location instead of a position is that a location, that is also defined by a position, can easily be reused by referencing the name. At the same time the position of a location can easily be updated at one place.
