Hey there,

nice to see this on Github :)

Any chance you can implement a lookup for lat/lngt, so we can hook this up to the standard HTML5 Geolocation API ?

We can currently do this by injecting the maxmind db into a database and querying that .. but going through a sql connection kinda sucks ^^

Privacy apart where you just lookup an ip without asking permission 1st ..This is especially useful on mobile phones that if the user allows, provides you with his lat/lng coordinates ..from there we need to get the rest of the info (Country, City...)

Thanks,
Robert

Hi,
unfortunately this is not possible with the current binary database format. But sounds like a good idea for another binary database for this purpose.

Have a nice day.
Boris
