how to get current location of user in sales force

i think in Manage Users->users->Locale Settings->Locale is the current location of sales force user can ant one suggest is it corret or not please
Locale doesn't necessarily refer to location - it defines the language, currency, number format etc.  Can you clarify what you mean by current location - for example, do you want to know where the user is physically located?
yes tell me how to know that one
You'll need to use the Geolocation API for that : 


so i have to create a filed with Geolocation type  ,later i have to give any location name to that field.finally that is the location of sales force user  am i correct?

Yes - you have to write the information to the geolocation field, through JavaScript.
ok ,so Find the longitude and latitude of the current location and display it in a field  for this question explain the process what i have to do?
Geolocation is a JavaScript API, so you'll have to have a Visualforce page, sidebar component or mobile application which the user opens to capture their current location.  Having captured it in JavaScript, you'll then need to write it back to the Salesforce server.  There's a recipe for this in my book (Visualforce Development Cookbook, available from all good booksellers :)
