  "city": "Mountain View",
  "country": "US",
  "timezone": "America/Los_Angeles",

}

Usage : As an IP Location library

import ipapi

ipapi.location(ip, key, output)

Options

Argument Description

Examples

  1. Find the location of your IP address
>>> ipapi.location()

The output would be a JSON object like this (assuming your IP is '50.1.2.3') :

{

    "country_code_iso3": "USA",
    "country_capital": "Washington",
    "country_tld": ".us",
    "country_name": "United States",
    "continent_code": "NA",
    "in_eu": false,
    "postal": "95817",
    "latitude": 38.548,
    "longitude": -121.4597,
    "timezone": "America/Los_Angeles",
    "utc_offset": "-0700",
    "country_calling_code": "+1",
    "currency": "USD",
    "currency_name": "Dollar",
    "languages": "en-US,es-US,haw,fr",
    "country_area": 9629091.0,
    "country_population": 310232863.0,
    "asn": "AS7065",
    "org": "SONOMA"
}
  1. Find the location of an IP address
>>> ipapi.location(ip='8.8.8.8')
{
    "ip": "8.8.8.8",
    "city": "Mountain View",
    "region": "California",
    ...
}

You can also use an IPv6 address e.g.

>>> ipapi.location(ip='2001:4860:1::1')
  1. Find the location of an IP address in xmlformat (other formats :json, csv,yaml)
>>> ipapi.location(ip='8.8.8.8', output='xml')
'<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  <root>
    <ip>8.8.8.8</ip>
    <city>Mountain View</city>
    ...
  </root>'
  1. Find your external IP address
>>> ipapi.location(output='ip')
'50.1.2.3'
  1. Find the city from an IP address
>>> ipapi.location(ip='8.8.8.8', output='city')
'Mountain View'

'US'
  1. Find the region of an IP address
>>> ipapi.location(ip='8.8.8.8', output='region_code')
'CA'
  1. Find if an IP address is located in the European Union
>>> ipapi.location(ip='8.8.8.8', output='in_eu')
'False'
  1. Find the latitude and longitude of an IP address
>>> ipapi.location(ip='1.2.3.4', output='latlong')
'-27.473101,153.014046'
  1. Find the postal code of an IP address
>>> ipapi.location(ip='1.2.3.4', output='postal')

'AS13335'
  1. Find the Organization of an IP address
>>> ipapi.location(ip='8.8.8.8', output='org')
'GOOGLE'

Usage : As an IP Location command line utility

ln -s /<virtual-env-path>/lib/python3.8/site-packages/ipapi ipapi

$ python ipapi -i <IP Address> -k <API KEY> -o <Output Format>
OR
$ python ipapi --ip <IP Address> --key <API KEY> --output <Output Format>
