IPGEO API - Comments

The service maps detected IP addresses to geolocations of their origins. By detecting the originating country and city, an application can control presentation of locally relevant content, manage language localization defaults, and detect attempts at online fraud, among other purposes. API methods support submission of the IP address detected from an HTTP request header and the type of location information desired (country, city, etc.). The API returns the location matching the submitted information.
