Sometimes, it pays to find out where an IP address is located. While this only gives you an approximation in physical location, it’s worthwhile to know that certain IPs are located in a certain latitude/longitude and more importantly, the city, state, and country.
Network Location Tool does just that. Give it an IP address and watch the mash-up with Google Maps at work. It’s definitely pretty amusing to actually see how close your virtual IP address is compared to your physical location. You’d be surprised that while it’s not exact, it should be pretty darn close.
