I've used MaxMind's stuff before. They have open source versions of
their databases even down to the city level, and they provide an API.

Subject: [Phpwm] locating user's geographical location by IP

Hi guys,
I was wondering if there was a way of finding out where a user is
my website from from, as in geographical location.

When I log ionto my Linux Web server, the shell starts with the string
login : from [IP]....[some kind of address]". - that's the kind of data
looking for

All I have managed to find are 3rd party apps that map ip to a
location. I want to do it in PHP

There must be a way of doing it in PHP.....

Thanks in advance,
