Geolocation is the process of obtaining and possibly transmitting the geographic position of a person or a resource.

 The main geolocation methods are :

 
  • Methods based on the analysis of a signal broadcasted through satellites, thanks to an electronic device (now mainly with GPS, and soon with Galileo) ;
     
  • Methods using digital mobile telephony network (cellule ID, triangulation) and the signal emitted by the phone ;
     
  • Analysis of a postal address in relation to a repository, it is called geocoding.
