Submission + - Mozilla Location Service: Geolocation Lookups From Public Cell Tower, WiFi Data

An anonymous reader writes: Mozilla today launched an experimental pilot project called Mozilla Location Service. The organization explains its goal is to provide geolocation lookups based on publicly observable cell tower and WiFi access point information. Mozilla admits that many commercial services already exist in this space, but it wants to provide a public one. The company points out there isn’t a single “large” public service that provides this data, which is becoming increasingly important when building various parts of the mobile ecosystem.
