The objective of collecting the OpenCellID from GSM cell towers is to increase the availability of these IDs for use in finding locations.

When no GPS signal is available, or the signal is not strong enough to locate the trackable inside of a building where the GPS reception is poor, then the Cell ID from the nearest GSM cell tower can be used to give a reasonably accurate position.

More details can be found on the website The exact position of a particular GSM cell tower can be found on the cell location page with a free query.
