Show map with user's IP location

In a post, I want to include a map that shows the user's IP Location. I can get longitude, latitude, city, region/state, and country from an IP Location service (like ipinfodb.com). With that information, I would like to show a map zoomed in on the city with a single point plotted at the longitude/latitude provided by the IP Location service with text/title that contains the user's IP Address, City, Region/State, and Country. Something like what you would see at utrace.de.

Is there a way to do this using the WPMU Dev Google Maps plugin?

Thanks in advance.

    Greetings wescleveland,

    Welcome to WPMU Dev!

    Great question but I am sorry to report not available for this plugin, plus even with the IP it is not a very accurate way to determine location except for perhaps country. i.e. people on Road Runner in most of the US show up as being in Herndon Virginia is memory serves me well. A long way from their actual internet connection in Seattle Washington.

    But no unless Google makes it available through their API which is highly unlikely considering they are already under fire over privacy concerns.

    Cheers, Joe :slight_smile:
