Current Status of IP Geolocation

  Date Duration
Slides August 26 60 min

Simultaneous interpretation will be provided into Spanish, English and Portuguese.


In this webinar we will answer the many questions received from operators and shed a light on what the current techniques for IP geolocation are and how they differ.
We will also provide a (mostly complete) list of contacts/API/forms to use for correcting geolocation informations in the currently available providers. Finally, we will see how to use the geofeed geolocation format (like the one used by LACNIC), and we will explain how the RIPE IPmap platform offered by RIPE NCC works and what the accuracy of their automatically inferred geolocation is.
