# Background
The Open Observatory of Network Interference (OONI) is a free software project which aims to empower decentralized efforts in increasing transparency of internet censorship around the world.
We develop free and open source software, called OONI Probe, that users can run to measure:
- Blocking of websites;
- Blocking of instant messaging apps (WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Telegram);
- Blocking of censorship circumvention tools (such as Tor);
- Presence of systems (middleboxes) in your network that might be responsible for censorship and/or surveillance;
- Speed and performance of your network.
By running OONI Probe, users can collect data that can potentially serve as evidence of internet censorship since it shows how, when, where, and by whom it is implemented.

# Problem
When looking at OONI Probe measurements we often face a challenge in properly understanding what country (or more granular location) they are telling us things about.
Often times the location information (since it's based on geoip) is inaccurate, because the underlying GeoIP database we used was old.
On the other hand we also have a responsibility to protect user privacy to the extent that it's possible and therefore we don't collect IPs or store location information that is more granular than country level.
See: https://github.com/ooni/probe-engine/issues/249
# Proposal
*Prerequisites:* familiarity with Android development and aptitude for research
The idea for this project is to research a way to do a GPS based location lookup which resolves the location of the user to a granularity which is useful for qualifying measurements, but that doesn’t compromise users safety and privacy.
