Issues and Contribution

Bug reports are done by creating an issue on Github. If you want to contribute you can always create a pull request for discussion and code submission.

Getting Started

Create your GeoIP instance with appropriate access flag. STANDARD reads data from disk when needed, MEMORY_CACHE loads database into memory on instantiation and MMAP_CACHE loads database into memory using mmap.

import pygeoip
gi4 = pygeoip.GeoIP('/path/to/GeoIP.dat', pygeoip.MEMORY_CACHE)
gi6 = pygeoip.GeoIP('/path/to/GeoIPv6.dat', pygeoip.MEMORY_CACHE)

Country Lookup

>>> gi4.country_code_by_name('google.com')
'US'
>>> gi4.country_code_by_addr('64.233.161.99')
'US'
>>> gi4.country_name_by_addr('64.233.161.99')
'United States'
>>> gi6.country_code_by_name('google.com')
'IE'
>>> gi6.country_code_by_addr('2001:7fd::1')
'EU'
>>> gi6.country_name_by_addr('2001:7fd::1')
'Europe'

Region Lookup

>>> gi = pygeoip.GeoIP('/path/to/GeoIPRegion.dat')
>>> gi.region_by_name('apple.com')
{'region_code': 'CA', 'country_code': 'US'}

City Lookup

>>> gi = pygeoip.GeoIP('/path/to/GeoIPCity.dat')
>>> gi.record_by_addr('64.233.161.99')
{
    'city': u'Mountain View',
    'region_code': u'CA',
    'area_code': 650,

    'country_code': 'US',
    'country_name': 'United States',
    'continent': 'NA'
}
>>> gi.time_zone_by_addr('64.233.161.99')
'America/Los_Angeles'

Organization Lookup

>>> gi = pygeoip.GeoIP('/path/to/GeoIPOrg.dat')
>>> gi.org_by_name('dell.com')
'Dell Computer Corporation'

ISP Lookup

>>> gi = pygeoip.GeoIP('/path/to/GeoIPISP.dat')
>>> gi.org_by_name('cnn.com')
'Turner Broadcasting System'

ASN Lookup

>>> gi = pygeoip.GeoIP('/path/to/GeoIPASNum.dat')
>>> gi.org_by_name('cnn.com')
'AS5662 Turner Broadcasting'
