When to use HTML5 geolocation over IP geolocation?

GT
Answer
by Geo Targetly

The best time to use HTML5 over IP location data is if you are developing a web app or providing service that requires location data. HTML5 is more accurate than IP-based geolocation systems. The reason is that HTML5 uses GPS built into the devices, while IP location data uses data provided by ISPs.
