Maxmind GeoIP is the one I've always seen used around the place. -
> Hi Everyone,
> An application I'm working on at the moment could benefit from some

> know what success people have had with the various products on the market?
> I realise that there will always be errors in the data set, it's
> impossible to tie down every IP.
> For my purpose I'm just trying to save most people a little time by
> auto-populating a state selector and maybe guessing a region or city.
> False hits are not the end of the world.
> I'd like to hear any suggestions on services people have consumed (data
> sets, web services). And maybe you have a horror story everyone would be
> interested in.
> Thanks in advance,
