Details of the IP to Location database CSV file downloads
The format used in the IP to Location CSV database exports is compliant with the specification in RFC4180 : Common Format and MIME Type for Comma-Separated Values (CSV) Files.
The character encoding is standard Unicode UTF-8.
The IP to Location database downloads in the Comma Separated Values format contain the following fields :
Sample row from the IP to Location CSV file :
22.214.171.124,126.96.36.199,NA,US,California,"Santa Clara County","Mountain View",94043,37.4229,-122.085,5375480,-7,America/Los_Angeles,USCA0746
This packages contains the core DB-IP class, a CSV database import tool, and sample lookup code.
Here are the few steps needed to import a CSV file into your local database instance using the tools above :
The first step is to create a new database table to hold the imported data.
If you are updating an already populated and running database, it is recommended you create a new table and use an atomic rename to switch the old with the new once the import is finished.
This is the MySQL table creation statement for the IP to Location lookup table needed by our supported query library and import tool :
CREATE TABLE `dbip_lookup` ( `addr_type` enum('ipv4','ipv6') NOT NULL, `ip_start` varbinary(16) NOT NULL, `ip_end` varbinary(16) NOT NULL, `continent` char(2) NOT NULL, `country` char(2) NOT NULL, `stateprov` varchar(80) NOT NULL, `district` varchar(80) NOT NULL, `city` varchar(80) NOT NULL, `zipcode` varchar(20) NOT NULL, `latitude` float NOT NULL, `longitude` float NOT NULL, `geoname_id` int(10) unsigned DEFAULT NULL, `timezone_offset` float NOT NULL, `timezone_name` varchar(64) NOT NULL, `weather_code` varchar(10) NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (`addr_type`,`ip_start`) ) DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4;
dbip-update is the preferred way for loading and updating databases. The tutorial below will guide you through installation, initial database import and setup of automatic updates :Database import and update tutorial
These packages are not maintained by the DB-IP team but we have selected them because they provide added functionnality or language support.
ZORAN.DB.IP.Importer is a tool that imports into Microsoft SQL Server the freely available geolocation database offered by www.db-ip.com.
Geocode IP addresses with a single Ruby if statement. No network access, no context switches, no delay, just one low-calorie lookup like
500,000 individual lookups per second is fairly typical performance.
This project leverages a simple Java webapp that acts as a wrapper around the db-ip.com geoip databases.
A simple to use Java library for the freely available DB-IP IP address to city dataset. Requires Java 8
