A geolocation API is an application that makes it simple to see the current geographic location of a device. In most cases, the API uses IP address data to determine geolocation, but other methods such as WiFi triangulation and connected mobile devices can also be used.
An API for geolocation services is software that allows users to determine the locations of devices or people. The API employs a variety of location detection methods, including IP address lookup, carrier lookup, and cell tower triangulation.
Users can create applications using the API that make use of location data gathered from users’ devices. Application developers may use the API to request access to user location data and receive a response with location data. In addition to providing a means for users to share their location with others, this API may also be used by application developers to retrieve a user’s location information.
The API uses the country code as a parameter in its geolocation function. This code can be obtained from the IP address of a server. The country code is most of the time accurate and may provide you with enough information to know where your visitors are coming from.
