ip2loc is a simple tool which visualizes location data for a given IP address using the Google Maps API. I created it for a few reasons:

  1. Most sites that do this charge or are clunky
  2. I wanted to write a simple application with Sinatra
  3. It was a good excuse to sharpen my jQuery skills
  4. Boredom

ip2loc is powered by Ruby, written with TextMate, and deployed with Passenger on DreamHost.
