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
