Resumen

The possibility of locating people is currently a highly demanded resource. In some cases it may be controversial, as the reasons for seeking this possibility may be malicious. However, there are also good reasons to want to locate people, from monitoring dependent people (especially children or minors) to controlling staff during work hours. In any case, there are some possibilities to achieve geolocation without cost and with currently available resources. The simplest and most effective way is through web browsers and this allows any modern device to allow using this possibility. Although this functionality is not new, since it has been available since the past decade, it is very useful and inexpensive and has allowed location through Web browser connections, based on Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. The World Wide Web Consortium (w3c) geolocation API specification defines a standard for accessing location services in the browser through JavaScript. The w3c Geolocation and the Device and Sensor Working Groups have addressed these demands with the specification of a Georeferencing API that is no longer maintained for the original version, but recently efforts have resumed. In this research work, geolocation resources have been used to locate college students who have been provided with University resources (cellphone and computer) so that they can receive teaching through a virtual platform teaching. The concern of the University is that the students are really where they have declared as their address and so the University wants to see that the equipment are there and are not elsewhere.
