Application For Geolocation Databases
MetadataShow full item record
Internet devices can be geographically located by their IP address. The location is derived without the need to communicate or have access to the device. This paper introduces a library and a standalone application for such location. The advantage of the library is a unified access to the major geolocation databases, as each database uses a specific access or interface. By this way, a location can be derived from various sources, compared, and best source selected. Commercial and free-to-use databases are included. The library is available via the GitHub and PyPi repositories.
