LocationAPI allows connected devices to locate themselves without the need for GPS. Using cell towers and/or WiFi information, LocationAPI returns a location for your device in milliseconds.
When you access our API with Cell ID/WiFi data from your mobile device, we use complex algorithms and reliable data about physical location of Cell Towers and WiFi Access Points to return an accurate location. If we are successful - and we are over 99.2% of the time - we hit you back with a latitude and longitude along with an accuracy estimate.
From Android to Embedded to Wearable devices, LocationAPI can locate any device that has Cellular or WiFi connectivity.
The more cell towers or WiFi access points that your device can detect, the better your accuracy will be. The median accuracy of locations we return for cell towers in urban centers is 450 meters and 1500 meters in rural areas. For WiFi access points, the accuracy is within 10 to 30 meters.
