Sometime we have requirement to get current location e.g. Country code, country name etc using lat long. Though there are lot of way to accomplish this task but i found the easiest way to do this. And definitely its worth sharing as a tip and tricks.

The following javascript code is used to find the location, latitude and longitude based on your IP address
XML
<script language="JavaScript" src="http://j.maxmind.com/app/geoip.js"></script>

<br>Country Code:
<script language="JavaScript">document.write(geoip_country_code());</script>
<br>Country Name:
<script language="JavaScript">document.write(geoip_country_name());</script>
<br>City:
<script language="JavaScript">document.write(geoip_city());</script>
<br>Region:
<script language="JavaScript">document.write(geoip_region());</script>
<br>Region Name:
<script language="JavaScript">document.write(geoip_region_name());</script>
<br>Latitude:
<script language="JavaScript">document.write(geoip_latitude());</script>
<br>Longitude:
<script language="JavaScript">document.write(geoip_longitude());</script>
<br>Postal Code:
<script language="JavaScript">document.write(geoip_postal_code());</script>



It displays your city name, latitude, longitude,country etc.
I hope you will like it.
