The source makes use of the new Mozilla Location Service[1] and that

help them extend their coverage: Mozstumblr. I talked to our designers
briefly about having a similar service/app in GNOME to be able to
contribute data from GNOME itself as well but lack of GPS hardware
makes it rather not that useful in the end.

So what I would really appreciate is for you nice folks to consider
installing Mozstumblr on your android phones (if you have one, that
is) and make our geolocation framework work as well as we all want it

  Mozilla works one way with this Location Service.  They do collect
data, but don't allow downloading them back:

  I don't think GNOME should encourage contributions to such closed,
proprietary service.
