Cell ID Collection Software
The Cell ID basic collection software is designed to allow simultaneous collection of GPS positions, GSM cell IDs, and other associated data. This collected data can then be used to triangulate a mobile users approximate location from devices without a GPS.
Various commercial services such as FollowUs offer PAYG services for locating handsets without inbuilt GPS. Also for developers there are commercial services from Navizon, and Skyhook. However for those in need of only a limited data set for a specific area, compiling your own may be a more cost effective option.
