Geolocation is the ability to position an element more or less precisely, here a telephone on Earth.
For a fixed telephone, it is a question of locating the house to which the line number is connected.
For a mobile phone, it is a question of locating the position of the device directly.
At the same time, from an international telephone number, it is possible to know the country of origin of the SIM card (this is not necessarily the place where the call was made).
French phone numbers are semi-structured and use a double geographic code, the first with the numbers from 01 to 05, which delimit 5 main regions in France but also and ZABPQ sub-codes (around 500) which are used to locate a geographic area close to the original location of the landline number.
Example: All landline telephone numbers (excluding VOIP internet phone) can be geolocated for free.
This page allows you to locate a landline telephone number for free. This method does not work for mobile phones staring with 06 or 07 (Warning: geolocation of a mobile phone without the owner's permission is prohibited)
The 5 regions are distributed as follows:
01: Paris and Paris region
02: North West of France
03: North-east of France
04: South-east of France and Corsica
05: South West of France
The French territories of the Atlantic Ocean are in 05 and the Indian Ocean in 02.
