Location information

in UnconfirmedDataUp there are rx_info and tx_info with location field that contain latitude and longitude information.
This coordinates are of Gateway and I hare 2 questions:

  1. Is it possible update gateway information instead of set manually?
  2. Is there a way to calculate the position of device?

Thanks in advance

Hi there :wave:,
Don’t know if I understand your need correctly, but:

  1. If your gateway is equiped with a GPS (for instance this is the case for Multitech and Kerlink outdoor gateways), the position will update automatically. Otherwise, this position will be setup in the interface. Maybe you can “fake” a GPS position at the gateway level, but it is probably something that can be different from one gateway to another.
  2. Yes… and no :slightly_smiling_face:
    You can do it using LoRa Cloud but the accuracy is low and it highly depends of the density of the network.
    Hope this helps.

  1. I have Kerlink outdoor, the location arrive on package but Chirpstack don’t update the position on “WEB UI” and my question is: Is there a parameter for update it or is not a capabilities?
  2. Could you explain me how I can do it?


  1. Not sure 100%, but if you modify the position manually in the interface one time, this may deactivate the update based on actual gateway location.
  2. You can start here: https://www.loracloud.com/static/GLS_one-sheet.pdf
    It works with the following integration:
