IP Geolocation Web Service

To figure out the lat long of an IP, we've been using a free IP Geolocation Web Service called freegeoip.net. It seems like we've hit their limit, so we're looking for another free or very low cost service to replace it.

Does anyone have any experience in this area?

Google App Engine provides built in geolocation but in my experience accuracy is hit or miss. Max mind offers a pay service that is quite good.

freegeoip.net is open source and is available at https://github.com/fiorix/freegeoip it is a simple database of IPs and their location. If you are hitting the limit of 10,000 hits/ hr. Rolling your own version on your servers should not be a big deal and actually will help you fine tune your app's performance.

I'm a long term happy user of Max Mind's GeoLite lite:http://www.maxmind.com/en/geolocation_landing. It's perfect if all you need is city level geo identification. Their paid services (downloadable batch file or web services) are also very affordable.

It's well worth it to pay 1-time for the full maxmind geoip database. You don't need to subscribe to monthly updates. Just buy an update whenever you feel like you need it.

why dont you just set your own instance up? "If the usage limit is a problem, please consider running your own instance of this system. It's open source and freely available at GitHub." Jose
