ip location on Google map

This little tool takes an ip address and maps it on a Google map. Using the simple API provided by hostip.info, I am trying to pinpoint the geographical location of an ip address. Not sure about the accuracy though. Also, this is a little experiment using the Ajax utility by Javascript Prototype framework.

If you don’t enter an ip address or hostname, the tool will try to map your current ip (hopefully).

One way I enjoy using this tool is to check where the “scanners” or spammers of my server are located. Not that I can do anything about it but just to get some idea.
