Geolocation status report: September 2014

Chris Peterson-12
Some recent news from Mozilla's Geolocation projects, including the
Mozilla Location Service (MLS):

* The new Firefox OS phones released in India, the Intex Cloud FX and
   the Spice Fire One, use MLS as their geolocation service!

* A zoomable world map of MLS coverage is published at [1]. To improve
   our coverage for Firefox OS users in India, we are working with
   Mozilla Reps to host stumbling meet-ups and competitions [2].

* Mozilla and the OpenCellID project are collaborating to publish our
   cell location databases for use by anyone. The release announcement
   and download links are at [3]. Mozilla has collected almost 2M cell
   locations and OpenCellID has collected over 6M, so this data sharing
   will boost both projects' coverage of the world's ~46M cells.

* "MozStumbler", our Android app to crowdsource the mapping of Wi-Fi and
   cell locations, has an improved map UI that shows your tracks and
   directs you to areas that need more measurements. You can download a
   beta of the new UI from GitHub [4]. To increase the number of users,
   we plan to publish MozStumbler in the Google Play Store when the new
   map UI is polished.

* Firefox for Android includes a simple stumbler, but this feature has
   been updated in Firefox 34 [5] to increase the data collection rate
   without more power usage.

Thanks for sharing the news Chris!

The links don’t quite match up with the numbering, you can map 1->2, 2->3, 3->1.

More information about the community events can also be found at https://wiki.mozilla.org/ReMo/SOPs/StumblingInABox
