Geosense: Software-Based Location Sensor for Windows 7

Geosense is a Windows Sensor that provides the Location and Sensors platform in Windows 7 with accurate and reasonably ubiquitous positioning information without requiring or the assistance of GPS hardware, enabling more practical location-based applications and scenarios on Windows 7.

Although not required, it works best on computers with a WiFi adapter. Geosense is designed to use a hybrid mix of geolocation service providers and geolocation methods to pinpoint the most accurate location information possible - including but not limited to WiFi triangulation, cell tower triangulation and IP lookup.

Currently supports:
  • Google Location Services (WiFi)
  • Google Location Services (IP)

Under consideration:
  • Google Location Services (Cell)
  • Skyhook Wireless (WiFi)
  • Quova (WiFi)
  • Navizon (WiFi)
