MaxMind GeoIP Legacy Python Extension API

Requirements

  • Python 2.5+ or 3.3+
  • GeoIP Legacy C Library 1.4.7 or greater

Installation

With pip:

$ pip install GeoIP

From source:

$ python setup.py build
$ python setup.py install

IP Geolocation Usage

IP geolocation is inherently imprecise. Locations are often near the center of the population. Any location provided by a GeoIP database should not be used to identify a particular address or household.

Usage

See the examples in the examples folder.

Troubleshooting

If you get a "libGeoIP.so.1: cannot open shared object No such file or directory" error, add /usr/local/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf then run /sbin/ldconfig /etc/ld.so.conf
