VERSION

version 2.006002

SYNOPSIS

  use 5.008;

  use GeoIP2::WebService::Client;

  my $client = GeoIP2::WebService::Client->new(
      account_id  => 42,
      license_key => 'abcdef123456',
  );

  my $insights = $client->insights( ip => '24.24.24.24' );

  my $location_rec = $insights->location();
  print $location_rec->name(), "\n";

DESCRIPTION

This class contains the location data associated with an IP address.

This record is returned by all the end points except the Country end point.

METHODS

This class provides the following methods:

$location_rec->accuracy_radius()

The approximate accuracy radius in kilometers around the latitude and longitude for the IP address. This is the radius where we have a 67% confidence that the device using the IP address resides within the circle centered at the latitude and longitude with the provided radius.

This attribute is returned by all end points and location databases except Country.

$location_rec->average_income()

This returns a non-negative integer representing the average income in US dollars associated with the requested IP address.

This attribute is only available from the Insights end point and the GeoIP2 Enterprise database.

$location_rec->latitude()

The approximate latitude of the location associated with the IP address. This value is not precise and should not be used to identify a particular address or household.

This attribute is returned by all end points and location databases except Country.

$location_rec->longitude()

The approximate longitude of the location associated with the IP address. This value is not precise and should not be used to identify a particular address or household.

This attribute is returned by all end points and location databases except Country.

$location_rec->metro-code()

This returns the metro code of the location if the location is in the US. MaxMind returns the same metro codes as the Google AdWords API (<https://developers.google.com/adwords/api/docs/appendix/cities-DMAregions>).

This attribute is returned by all end points except the Country end point.

$location_rec->population_density()

Returns a non-negative integer representing the estimated population per square kilometer associated with the requested IP address.

This attribute is only available from the Insights end point and the GeoIP2 Enterprise database.

$location_rec->time_zone()

This returns the time zone associated with a location, as specified by the IANA Time Zone Database (<http://www.iana.org/time-zones>), e.g., "America/New_York".

This attribute is returned by all end points except the Country end point.
