Talking about GeoIP in the Adsense's GDPR topic , I was wondering if there is a way to get "directly" the location associated to a given IP. I mean, we all know about Maxmind, IP2Location, etc... which are providing free and paid GeoIP databases. But where do they take this information?
It's possible to know the owner of an IP Range, but how to determine the location of these IP? Where is it "stored"? Is there something like being able to query the ICANN or Regional Internet registries, to get this information? Or some kind of raw database centralizing all of this ?
