MozStumbler - Mozilla Location Service is an experimental project that aims to provide location-based services using data collected from users. The objective is to create a database of cell towers and WiFi access points that mobile devices can use to retrieve their location instead of having to rely on GPS.
Users who want to contribute to the project can do so by installing the open source MozStumbler app on their Android-powered devices. The application collects the needed data while the user is walking around and uploads it to Mozilla's servers.
MozStumbler is built with privacy in mind and doesn't collect any personal data.
