This node allows to extract various location-related information for
given IP addresses via
GeoIP2 data, such a country, city, postal codes, coordinates, and
various technical details. It supports IPv4 addresses (e.g.
184.108.40.206) and IPv6 addresses (e.g.
using the “canonical form” according to RFC 5952
is recommended, but any valid string representation is handled).
You can use the node with different data sources:
For more details, please check the corresponding nodes’ documentation.
Please note that (quoting from here): “IP geolocation is inherently imprecise. Locations are often near the center of the population. Any location provided by a GeoIP2 database or web service should not be used to identify a particular address or household.”
The selected “Response Type” determines the kind and granularity (i.e. columns) of data to return. The available Response Types on the other hand depend on the data source which is connected as input to this node. Currently, the following types are supported (for a fine-grained description of all fields please see here):
|Country||Information about the continent, country, and the network in CIDR notation where the user of the IP address is located. See here for more details.|
|City||Includes all information from “Country” and additional information about the city, zip code, metro code, time zone, latitude/longitude, accuracy, ISP/organization, domain and AS number. See here for more details.|
|Insights||Includes all information from “City” and additional “insights”: Is IP used as an anonymizer, the type of anonymizer (e.g. proxy or VPN), is the IP static or dynamic, a user type classification (e.g. whether IP is used as “business, residence, cellular connection, traveler, government/military entity, and more”). See here for more details.|
|ASN||Provides only information related to the autonomous system (i.e. ISP-related information) of the IP address.|
