GeoIP is a C library that enables the user to find the country that any IP
address or hostname originates from. It uses a file-based database.
This package contains a script that downloads the latest version of the binary
flavour of the MaxMind GeoLite databases. In particular:
- GeoLite Country
- GeoLite Country IPv6
- GeoLite City
- GeoLite ASN
This database simply contains IP blocks as keys, and countries/cities/ASNs as
values and it should be more complete and accurate than using reverse DNS
The MaxMind database itself is distributed under a BSD-like license. However it
is made available in binary only format and the source code for generating it
is not provided.
