Geoclue is a modular geoinformation service built on top of the D-Bus messaging system. The goal of the Geoclue project is to make creating location-aware applications as simple as possible.

Geoclue defines a set of geoinformation APIs, but it also includes some providers that implement those APIs. Here is a list of services provided through Geoclue with the currently included implementations:

Position
    gpsd, gypsy, hostip, plazes, gsmloc
Address
    hostip, plazes, manual, localnet
Velocity
    gpsd, gypsy
Geocode
    nominatim, geonames, yahoo
ReverseGeocode
    nominatim, geonames

Geoclue source code contains:

    * D-Bus definitions for the above APIs
    * C bindings for Geoclue clients
    * C bindings for data providers
    * a set of provider implementations
    * (experimental) master provider implementation.
