 Geolocation by IP Address

"Geolocation by IP address is the technique of determining a user's geographic latitude, longitude and, by inference, city, region and nation by comparing the user's public Internet IP address with known locations of other electronically neighboring servers and routers. This article presents some of the reasons for and benefits of using geolocation through IP address, as well as several techniques for applying this technology to an application, Web site or user community."
