geoPlugin API - Developers

The service detects a web visitor's IP address and provides the user's global location, with varying accuracy depending on the country of origin. A companion service uses geocoding to return information about services and places near the detected user location. API methods support submission of a detected IP address and return a range of geolocation information, including country, region, city, latitude and longitude, currency code and symbol, and current exchange rate. The geocoding API provides specifications for business and places nearby a submitted latitude and longitude.
