Is there some way of getting the connected users geolocation (latitude, longitude) through a 7502 Access Point or some kind of controller that it's connected to or through an API?

Thanks!

I believe that you can get location via NSight.

What is your goal?

You can add latitude and longitude to the AP and check what client is connected to what AP. But not latitude and longitude for real client position.

We have a system where we want to collect information about connected users geoposition, not the AP position, thanks!

You can get X/Y coordination with ExtremeLocation, I think latitude and longitude is not possible. But if you have X/Y you can map it to latitude and longitude.

AP7502 is not supported on ExtremeLocation; from the WiNG portfolio these are supported: AP7522 / AP7532 / AP7562 / AP8432 / AP8533

Altho in ExtremeLocation config during initial site configuration, you do set the pin on the map to automatically fetch geo coordinates and time zone.
