Ichnaea

Ichnaea is a service to provide geolocation coordinates from other sources of data (Bluetooth, cell or WiFi networks, GeoIP, etc.). It is using both :term:`Cell-ID` and Wi-Fi based positioning (:term:`WPS`) approaches.

Mozilla hosts an instance of this service, called the Mozilla Location Service (:term:`MLS`).

You can interact with the service in two ways:

  • If you know where you are, submit information about the radio environment to the service to increase its quality.
  • or locate yourself, based on the radio environment around you.

About the name

In Greek mythology, Ichnaea (Iknaia) means "the tracker".
