Cell ID

Custom JSP tags library for mobile developers. Lets you obtain geo coordinates for the given Cell ID. Cell ID is the unique number of a GSM cell for a given operator. Any phone is always connected to some cell, and by knowing this number, you know the Cell, and by knowing the position of the cell, you know where your phone is. There are some accuracy issues, as the cell can cover from several hundreds of meters to several kilometers, but this could be a very good starting point to locate the phone. Tag lets you obtain location data via Ericsson labs mobile location API - Mobile location taglib.
