The service provides search access to a database of geolocation information for IP addresses and host names. An application can query with an IP or host name and retrieve the geographic location of the associated server.
API methods support submission of a query specifying either IP address or host name and the desired output format for the data. Returned data include the city code and name, the region code and name (e.g., U.S. state or Canadian province), the country code and name, postal code, latitude and longitude.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
