Geo-location tracking is the identification of the real-world geographic location of an object, such as a radar source, mobile phone or Internet-connected computer terminal. Geo-location may refer to the practice of assessing the location, or to the actual assessed location. Geo-location is closely related to the use of positioning systems but may be distinguished from it by a greater emphasis on determining a meaningful location (e.g. a street address) rather than just a set of geographic coordinates.
For either geolocating or positioning, the locating engine often uses radio frequency (RF) location methods, for example Time Difference Of Arrival (TDOA) for precision. TDOA systems often utilise mapping displays or other geographic information system. When a GPS signal is unavailable, geo location tracking applications can use information from cell towers to triangulate the approximate position, a method that is not as accurate as GPS but has greatly improved in recent years. This is in contrast to earlier radio location technologies, for example Direction Finding where a line of bearing to a transmitter is achieved as part of the process.
