GeLog resolves stations locations in two ways:
Through (recommended).
To use this mode is necessary to have an account with access to XML Logbook Data service
Through  a local database that should be imported using the import tool provided by the application.

If you run GeLog without a valid QRZ account and having an empty local database, GeLogs will assign a default location based on the call  prefix., this means all QSOs of the same country will have the same coordinates.
