The localisation information is quite straight forward. Its Google, of course their documentation is well documented. It is of JSON formatting and the sample WPS file should look like: [wpdm_file id=1 title=”true” desc=”true”]

The request body must be formatted as JSON. The following fields are supported, and all fields are optional:

  1. homeMobileCountryCode: The mobile country code (MCC) for the device’s home network.
  2. homeMobileNetworkCode: The mobile network code (MNC) for the device’s home network.
  3. radioType: The mobile radio type. Supported values are gsm, cdma, and wcdma. While this field is optional, it should be included if a value is available, for more accurate results.
  4. carrier: The carrier name.
