Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite based tracking system used to determine a device's physical location. Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) and Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) are wireless technologies used by access points and devices to communicate. Both are used widely between cell phones and cell phone towers. A Geotag is a digital tag that identifies a files location at the time it was created - typically used in photos and videos.
The Global Positioning System (GPS), originally Navstar GPS (stylized in capital letters in its logo), is a satellite-based radionavigation system owned by the United States government and operated by the United States Space Force It is one of the global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) that provides geolocation and time information to a GPS receiver anywhere on or near the Earth where there is an unobstructed line of sight to four or more GPS satellites Obstacles such as mountains and buildings block the relatively weak GPS signals The GPS does not require the user to transmit any data, and it operates independently of any telephonic or internet reception, though these technologies can enhance the usefulness of the GPS positioning information
