Geolocated Latitude with MaxMind GeoIP2 (mm2latitude)
Uses MaxMind GeoIP2 services to return the approximate latitude associated with an IPv4 or IPv6 address.
How does it work in the search window?
This operation only requires one argument:
|Ip (v4 or v6) (mandatory)||ip, ip6|
The data type of the new column is float.
We want to get the approximate latitudes associated with the IP addresses in our clientIpAddress column, so we click Create column and select the Geolocated ISP name with MaxMind GeoIP2 operation. Select clientIpAddress as the argument and assign a name to the new column - let's call it latitudeApprox.
The result is a column of float data type containing the approximate latitude.
How does it work in LINQ?
Use the operator
as... and add the operation syntax to create the new column.
Copy the following LINQ script and try the above example on the
This LINQ script filters out null values from the clientIpAddress column, adds the approximate latitude, and finally adds the radius of accuracy. The radius of accuracy is an indicator of the level of precision of the latitude.
