Hi, is it possible to locate mobile caller location? My client wants a module to be developed to track the caller's location whenever a call is received. Any guide/startup link would be highly appreciated. Thanks

That depends on who runs the software you're talking about. The telco provider obviously has a rough idea of where a phone is, since they know which tower is used. For anybody else, it's not possible (unless you're talking about writing a VoIP mobile app that is granted location permission by the user).
