Geolocation is a process of identifying accurate geographic coordinates of a person or an electronic device. Geolocation uses technologies such as Global Positioning System (GPS) which provides longitude and latitude of an object we are interested to locate, in accordance with Internet-processed digital data.

Geolocation is an integral part of information verification. Through geolocation we can learn about the coordinates of important objects or developments such as training camps, movement of armed forces, change in landscape, et cetera. For this purpose we use universally available open satellite maps such as Google Earth, Wikimapia and others.
