The approximate place where you are at the moment can be determined by the IP number. This makes reference to the address pool where the IP comes from.

If the PC, smartphone or tablet has a GPS sensor, it can be used for finding location much more exactly. The same is true of a Wi-Fi connection. In this case, the browser must support the location search, but all current browsers do. Click on “Positioning via HTML5.”
