Given the connected world we live in, people may not be aware of the fact that everything they do, and nearly everywhere they go, their phones or devices can potentially track it. This location data can be a major factor in many types of investigations. Unless someone is willing to forgo technology altogether, they will almost certainly be creating location data that can be used as evidence.
Location Forensics Investigation
Not only do our devices record information about our location history, but they also record other kinds of location data. The sources of location information are no longer reserved for GPS units and phone records. Your mobile phone is recording your location activity so it can act as a personal assistant, predicting when you're about to leave for work and informing you that traffic will be heavy. Your digital camera includes geolocation coordinates in the metadata of the pictures you take. The infotainment system in your car can be recording where you go, even if you have no location set for navigation. And these examples are only scratching the surface.
Given the breadth of location evidence sources, and the depth of complexity for each individual source, our digital forensics division has a dedicated team of certified experts who specialize in location forensics.
