ISSEL GeoDetail


ISSEL GeoDetail adds accurate and detailed geolocation information to HitList databases. Normally HitList only provides country information which is based on the site-names of the visiting computers where a fixed mapping of the top site name domain determines country. That means that all .uk domains are mapped to the UK but also that all .com domains are mapped to the US. Since many companies in the UK and Europe elect to use .com domain names this kind of mapping distorts the picture.

   

To resolve this problem ISSEL GeoDetail takes the visitor IP-addresses already stored in the Marketwave HitList database and looks them up in a built-in database extracted from the publicly available RIPE Whois system. Since this system stores actual registration information about the IP-addresses is it inherently more accurate then a mapping against top domain names. On top of this GeoDetail also adds much more detail about every Visitor IP address, not just the country but also region, city, ISP, owner, post code, area code, dma code, latitude and longitude information. This is particularly effective for identifying visitors from companies as a high proportion of companies will have their information stored in the RIPE Whois system.

 

GeoDetail can also tell which country AOL users visiting your sites comes from, something which is otherwise considered notoriously difficult.
