What two methods are used for most geofencing application?

Geofencing is a location-based service that allows businesses and individuals to define virtual boundaries around a real-world geographic area. Commonly used for security and marketing purposes, geofencing can be used to automatically trigger an action when a mobile device enters or leaves a predetermined area. There are two main types of geofencing applications: GPS-based and network-based.

GPS-based geofencing uses the Global Positioning System to track a mobile device’s location. This method is more accurate than network-based geofencing but can drain a device’s battery more quickly.

Network-based geofencing uses cell tower triangulation to track a mobile device’s location. This method is not as accurate as GPS-based geofencing but doesn’t drain a device’s battery as quickly.
