Mozilla Location Service, a growing geolocation service
At the end of last year, Mozilla announced its location service as a pilot project to provide geolocation searches based on information from WiFi hotspots and communication tower cells.
These searches can be used for example where the GPS is not available or is not accurate enough. The map shows 27 million measurement points through 10 x 10-meter reticular cells and Mozilla is working hard with the Mapbox team as far as the project is concerned.
For the growth of the maps and the locations, we have the option of downloading Mozstumbler for Android, an application that we will have to execute for those places we go, scanning the WiFi networks and the cells of the communication towers, all this to build the map, which is focused on a totally free database (in comparison with the Google and Apple maps, which are proprietary).
The Mozstumbler application can be found in F-Droid or GitHub .
